Instrument rentals for 2024-25

If a student is currently using a school instrument, and plans on returning to orchestra in the 2024-25 school year, I will plan on checking out the same instrument to that student.

If your student does not currently use a school instrument, but needs one for the 2024-25 school year, please contact Mrs. Martinez.

If you do not plan to return to orchestra next year, we will need your instrument returned by May 20.

For those returning, we do ask that school instruments be kept at home this summer due to the Construction in the MNHS Music Wing.

Great news!  The district is remodeling the band and choir rooms, and will replace doors on all music classrooms this summer! We will not have access to our facilities from June 1-July 31, so if you need a school-owned instrument/equipment over the summer, it will have to live with you until school resumes 🙂
