Advancing Band Students

Moving from 'Beginner' to 'Step-Up' Instruments

Woodwind, Brass and String instruments are produced for three basic levels of performance:

1. Beginner
2. Step-up (Intermediate)
3. Professional

Beginners require instruments that are designed for ease of use by smaller and/or younger students, and at a price that will encourage parents to give their children the opportunity to participate.

Intermediate Students
Advancing students will enjoy the warm, rich tone and more accurate intonation of a step-up instrument. Also, intermediate instruments will have a quicker response as technical facility increases, and an extended range.
