Select your instrument and have fun searching lots of music written by composers who are now in the Public Domain!
Penders is a local music company, located in Denton! Feel free to peruse online or take a trip to the store to buy some music - they have method books, solo music, and fun pop tunes!
Want to buy some fun popular music or a challenging solo? JW Pepper is used nationwide by band directors all over the place! (They also sometimes have more resources than Penders, but shipping can tend to be slower)

**I do not recommend using an instrument stand if the instrument is not carefully monitored. However, if you would like to purchase a stand, the Hercules brand is the most trustworthy. Make sure to select the one that fits your instrument**
