Happy March, everyone! Here at Music and Arts Springfield, we're big college basketball fans (no, we won't share our bracket predictions yet), but we're even bigger fans of helping you make music! We've got some really great deals going on in March, from 15% off of select Giardinelli and Titan accessories and stands, to big price cuts on our student-level Allora models. Have an itch to pick up the saxophone? We've got the Allora AAS-250 Alto Sax for sale down to $639.99! Need a durable trumpet for someone in marching band? The Allora ATR-250 Trumpet is on sale for $349.99! Student instruments are a great way to own a good-quality instrument that make a great stand-in as a practice piece. Don't want to drag that Selmer or Bundy Tenor Sax back and forth to school? Come see us! You can keep the Selmer at school and have the Allora at home for practicing.
Also, a HUGE congratulations to our piano teacher Lisa Thomas! She took her Music and Arts students to the NFMC Festival for adjudication... and EVERY SINGLE ONE came back with a superior rating. We are very proud to number her among our faculty here at Springfield, and we're ecstatic that her students were so successful! We're planning a recital for her students soon, so keep your ears to the ground for upcoming news!
Finally, we have another amazing opportunity coming up for you if you play Woodwinds or Brass. Every year, Music and Arts puts on a district-wide trade show called Horns of Plenty. What is Horns of Plenty (HoP), you ask? Only one of the biggest regional showcases of band and orchestral instruments on the East Coast! Looking to upgrade that Jupiter clarinet? We'll have inventory and representatives there from Buffet. Need an awesome alto sax to upgrade your sound? We'll have Yamaha YAS-480s, P. Mauriat PXMA-67s, and more at HoP. Looking for something we don't often have in store, like a Fox or Patricola oboe? Let us know with enough time before the event, and we can try to get them in for you to test out! HoP is a great opportunity to upgrade your current instrument, and to make it even MORE awesome, the deals we offer at HoP are one-of-a-kind. We don't know this years' available deals just yet (we're still working with the manufacturers), but at past events we have had double rebates, and amazing discounts above and beyond what we do in-store. At HoP, we have customers come in by appointment, ensuring that you have the nessecary time to try out the instruments and make a careful, informed decision- always important when you're picking your next instrument. Have questions? Speak to one of the staff here in store to be put on the interest list or schedule an appointment!
