Instruments should not be purchased without notifying the orchestra director or private lesson teacher. Buying an instrument is like buying a car. You would never buy a car without taking it for a test drive first, right? So, don't buy an instrument without allowing a professional instrumentalist play on it first.
Many online sources are scams! Never purchase an instrument without playing on it first, pictures are not good enough.
The music stores provided have been approved by FriscoISD and the Fowler Middle School orchestra directors.
Please contact Ms.Flores if you are ready to purchase an instrument.
