Re: New instrument Advice
I think your desire to buy quality instruments is good, but if you're in a small school program (I've been teaching small school for 15 years)...unless you're just flush with $$$ for some reason, that seems like overkill to me. I'd rather have multiple very good intermediate instruments than a couple of professional models.
Obviously we don't know your whole situation, but if you have no horns now, I'd consider getting 2 of the 567s now and starting a couple of kiddos on those. Meanwhile, use the leftover $$$ to fill some other needs in your program -- tenor or bari sax? bass clarinet? a handful of clarinets and/or flutes?
