It is very important that students are playing quality band instruments. A good guideline is to rent or purchase an instrument only from a store that can also do instrument repairs.
To guide you in your decision, the district is hosting an Instrument Rental Event.
Where: Byrne Creek Secondary School (gym) – 7777 18th Street, Burnaby
When: Tuesday, September 18th, 2017 from 4:00 to 7:00 pm.
At this event you will be able to choose an instrument for your child from a number of reputable companies that offer instrument rental programs and purchase other required supplied (please see “Required Materials” for more information). This year we will have Long and Mcquade Music, Massullo Music, Matterhorn Music, Tapestry Music and Tom Lee Music attending. The process will take about 1 hour with an additional 30 minutes allocated for your child’s first music lesson. The lesson is a great starting point for your child and will make the first few classes of band much easier. Please make every effort to attend this event.
