    **When buying reeds it is more cost effective to buy half of a box so your child will have extras when they break or get worn out.  Also, please be aware as your child advances as a musician they will need to move up to harder reed sizes.  I will inform you and your child throughout the year whenever this needs to happen.
     
    Recommended Reed Brands:  "Rico" "Vandoren" and "Mitchell Laurie"
     
    **Please note that some brands of reed may be more expensive but they are of high quality and will provide the best results as your child learns to play their instrument.  Brands that are not as expensive tend to be of lesser quality and can hinder your child's ability to achieve success.
