I'm an new elementary music teacher. My campus hasn't had music in quite a while.
I want to promote band and choir and I pretty much know what band directors and choir directors would like their kids to already be exposed to before getting to middle school. I was a middle school band director for several years.
I've tried multiple times to contact the middle school and high school feeder programs to ask if they have extra instruments so I can demonstrate and get the kids excited about band but they haven't responded.
Are there other sources that I am not thinking about? Students would not be handling the instruments.
