So ds1 started middle school this year which means he also starts band. He wants to learn the saxophone. So do 8 other kids in his grade and there are only 2 school ones available. Whoever doesnt get a school one has to rent from local music stores which costs about $85 a month. I just received an email this morning letting me know that my son will received one of the schools saxophones! Thank goodness because I was trying to figure out how I was going to afford to rent one for him!

can probably find one for anywhere from $100 to $300 but i dont know what all the school really requires...but $85 a month is a bit steep

 its been years ago and i played the flute and we had to buy our instruments. i sold it years later to a girl who was starting band. im glad your son was chosen.

We bought used instruments when I was in middle school band; renting was just really pricey. I'm so glad your son has the opportunity to use a school instrument and figure out if this is a good fit without spending a lot of extra money. Hope he loves it!
