Junior Band & Orchestra

Every musician has to start somewhere and a junior band or orchestra is often your child’s first introduction to music. It gives children the opportunity to play a variety of different instruments and develop their musical skills in a group environment that is fun and supportive. And if your child plans on being in the band or orchestra from elementary to high school, buying the instrument is much more advantageous and convenient. Kids can take pride in owning their own instrument, and keeping the piece shiny, clean and in tune helps to teach skills and build confidence.

Your choice of instrument depends on whether your child wants to be a brass or a woodwind player. Brass instruments include the trombone, saxophone and trumpet while the woodwind family features the flute and clarinet. Once that decision is sorted out, you’ll want to look for band or orchestra instruments that are made especially for beginners and designed to accommodate junior sized hands.

If your son or daughter is aspiring to be the next Louis Armstrong, you might want to start with the Etude ETR – 100 Series Student Bb trumpet. Features like a generous bore, a first valve thumb saddle and a third valve finger ring make this trumpet very easy to hold and ideal for novice players. There’s also a mouthpiece and case included with the trumpet so your budding musician can start practicing as soon as you get home.

When a woodwind is the instrument of choice, the Buffet Crampon B12 Bb Clarinet is a great one for students. This clarinet is lightweight yet strong and very easy to clean. It provides a great tone and feel from the very first time your son or daughter picks it up to play. That helps with building their musical confidence so they can start mastering the clarinet like the “King of Swing” himself, Benny Goodman.

Another fantastic choice for beginner brass players is the Allora Student Series Alto Saxophone – Model AAAS-301. A tilting G# key and Bb table keys, as well as a high F# note, provide excellent intonation and consistent play throughout the ranges so your little Charlie Parker wannabe can blend right in with the saxophone section. With a molded case, mouthpiece, ligature and cap included, this alto saxophone comes ready to play.

Choosing the right junior band and orchestra instruments really comes down to personal preference. Whether your child has joined a concert band, jazz band or marching band, there are a lot woodwind and brass options out there that cater to novice musicians so you’re sure to find the perfect instrument to suit their needs.
