Music Stores


The following music stores should be able to assist you in renting/purchasing an instrument for band class this year.  Please take care when looking at instruments sold on Internet auction sites or at local warehouse stores.  Feel free to contact Ms. Wade (slwade@atlanta.k12.ga.us) if you have any doubts before you purchase an instrument!  It is also very important to take the band supply list with you when you go to the store so that you will have the proper equipment.
