Three easy steps to choosing the right student instrument

  • Real Value Comes From Quality

    Don't confuse low price with good value. Real value comes from quality. A high grade starter instrument might cost more initially but will repay your investment by encouraging and rewarding the learning process.
  • Ask a Music Teacher

    Having witnessed some of their students struggling with inferior instruments, music teachers usually know best. They also prefer instruments that play in tune - instruments like Yamaha.
  • Consider the environment

    Yamaha brass and woodwind instruments produce a small carbon footprint and use lead-free solder. That's great for our kids today and even better for their futures.
