Virtual Session - Learn About Instruments and Reserve Your Rental

Tuesday June 2nd, 2020 - 6:30pm

Brass Bell Music Facebook Page

Whether you’re a beginning band or orchestra student looking to pick out an instrument for the very first time, or you've been out of school for a while and looking for a new hobby, we’ve got you covered! Our goal is to make the instrument selection process fun and easy by bringing our instrument try-outs to your home...VIRTUALLY!

A team of our veteran staff are going LIVE on Facebook on Tuesday, June 2nd, to walk you through each starting band and orchestra instrument. They will demonstrate to you how each instrument sounds, show you what you will need to play it, and explain how you can rent one this summer without the stress or long-term commitment of buying. To top it off, you can take advantage of our event-exclusive online rental deals to make the process easier than ever. Hope to see you there!
