"My Son Almost Quit Band"

Stephanie Murphy has a son who started band this fall. He brought his saxophone home and with great expectation, got ready to practice. He carefully put on the reed that came in the case and began to play. As hard as he tried, he was unable to create a sound or do any of the exercises without squeaking. He was so frustrated that he went to his mother and told her he didn't think he could play an instrument and that he felt like quitting. His mother urged him to keep trying and also said she would bring some JUNO reeds home.

From the time Stephanie's son began using JUNO reeds, his progress has been amazing. "He wants to play all the time," commented Stephanie.

“Northwest Music Center is new to me. I walked in yesterday. A great guy met me at the door.

They've got beautiful equipment, very tempting....

too tempting! I wanted to sit down and play the drums...but my eye caught a dark blue acoustic, reasonably priced. So it awaits me, and the great thing....they offer lessons!!! Go, enjoy.”        Susan D.
