Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is “Upgrade Your Sound?”

As students advance in their musical abilities, so should their instruments.  Our “Upgrade Your Sound” event is the nation’s largest, semiannual sale where we invite you, your students, or your kids, to step-up your instrument from a beginner to an intermediate or professional-level instrument for improved sound, technique, intonation and response.

What is “Horns of Plenty?”

Horns of Plenty are Upgrade Your Sound events tailored specifically to woodwind and brass instrument musicians.  We carry a large, plentiful assortment of clarinets, flutes, trumpets, trombones, saxophones, low brass and more, from popular brands so that you don’t ever have to worry about not having enough choices.

What is “String Showcase?”

Similarly, String Showcases are Upgrade Your Sound events for orchestral string musicians.  We carry the largest selection of violins, violas, and cellos but we can also get access to upright basses and electronic violins.  Tell us what you are looking for and we’ll make it happen!

Are the events free to attend?

Yes!  Whether you RSVP online or in-store or if you are a walk-in, there is no obligation to buy.  It is also free to special request an item to be waiting for you at your event to playtest.

Can I bring my music educator to help me select the right instrument?

We want you to feel confident in your purchase.  Having third-party guidance, such as your band director or private lesson instructor, will give you more insight into finding the right instrument.  Please bring them to the event.  We would love to meet them!

I don’t see an event listed for my town.

If you don’t see an event in your city, it may have already expired or it isn’t on our roadmap yet.  But don’t fret!  You can choose from hundreds of retail stores across the country and our retail staff will provide you with the same white-glove assistance in finding your dream instrument.  Find your nearest location at www.MusicArts.com/Stores.
