Hosford Middle School Bands

    Still need an instrument for the school year? Not sure what you want to play? Then please join us on the 23rd at our Hosford instrument fair. Tigard music will be on hand with all the instruments so that students can try them out to help make the best choice for success. If you are a returning student or you already know what you want to play, show up just to rent. Here are the options:
    1) Rent from Tigard Music - They will have rentals available and ready to go. Rental prices vary.
    2) Rent from the district - $75 for the year/Free for free and reduced lunch.
    3) Rent from your store of choice - many options if you want to shop around.
    ***Saxophone will be strictly limited in beginning band. Students wanting to play saxophone should plan on starting on clarinet. Later on it is an easy switch to saxophone. Changes to saxophone will be done as needed to build instrumentation.
    There are many bad instruments out there whether they are new, on craigslist, on ebay, or from a pawn shop. There is nothing more frustrating for a young musician than a faulty instrument. If you would like to purchase an instrument please talk to Mr. Johnston first so that you know you are making the right choice.
    I'm looking forward to getting our young musicians up and running. Hope to see you there!
    Scott Johnston,

    Director of Bands, Hosford MS
