    I have looked here too, and emailed a link to her band director. Maybe that will be the way to go.

    Let me just add that trumpets are freaking LOUD.
    My dd plays the trumpet! She started last year with it in beginner band at age 9.

    On second thought, maybe renting an instrument, say a flute, isn't a good idea.

    Our music store hooked people in with $12.50 for 3 mos. to "try" it and then they jacked it up to $35.78 or some odd figure like that.

    Our band director told us horror stories of buying off ebay and craigslist and the costs to repad/overhaul instruments.
