The school should have instruments. Why don't you use them?

The band's program is new. The instruments used in past years weren't taken care of while in storage. They need to be seriously repaired/replaced. Student use is not currently available.

Surely there's a local music store around. Why don't you rent to own?

Because of the price of these instruments a special order is required. They do not rent-to-own. Prior financing approval is required. I was denied.

If you can't afford a new instrument why don't you buy a used one?

Sellers want payment in full. No one I've contacted will accept a payment plan on a used instrument.

Why doesn't the school band program pay for these instruments if they're so expensive?

Since this program is so new we haven't raised any money to cover expenses of this nature. Funding through the school is still in paperwork stages.

Aren't there any charitable organizations that will help your band?

There are lots of places that help underprivileged children or band programs with instruments. The kicker is the band has to be running smoothly for at least a year or two before they will help. If we could get this thing going for that long then we may not even need their help. But it's their rule we get on our feet first before they will throw us a life line!

What will you do with the money you raise if you don't get enough for the euphonium?

If this fundraiser doesn't make enough to buy the wanted instrument, All money that is raised will be given to the BBJH Band program/Booster Club under the care of the current band director to use as he sees fit for the band. The goal is to raise enough money to buy the instrument itself and any extra money will then go to the band savings fund.

I have found a pre-owned but well taken care of Yamaha for sale, priced at $1,900. It comes with the case and also the necessary cleaning kit. The overall goal for this fundraiser will stay at $2,500. Any money raised over the instrument cost will be given to the BBJH Tiger Band as previously stated.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS!
