    Rentals

    If you are renting an instrument for the year from Baldwin Middle School, there is a fee of $75.  You can submit payment for your rental instrument from BMS on myschoolbucks.com.  

     

    If you have a rental from elementary school, it must be returned before an instrument is issued from BMS. 

     

     

    Purchasing?

    If you are thinking of purchasing an instrument, please read through the link below.  There are reputable stores in and around Baldwin where you can find assistance in purchasing an instrument.  Obtaining an instrument from the internet, as convenient as it may be in our busy world, is not the best way to go.  Additionally, please do not purchase an instrument from the same place you purchase your groceries.  

    A student should ALWAYS try it out before buying.       

    Yes this hand out applies to Viola, Cello and Basses too!
