• ​The largest of the string instruments, the Double Bass has the lowest sounds of the orchestra. But, did you know that a Bass can also play as high as a violin? It’s true! The Bass is capable of playing the entire range of any of the above-listed instruments. Also, since the Bass is a less common instrument, it is also less competitive and there are many opportunities (like scholarships!) for Bass players!  While Basses mainly provide the foundation for music, a bass also has the ability to play any melody as well as different styles of music like jazz or bluegrass. Don't worry about playing a large instrument - string instruments are very special because they come in smaller sizes and you just exchange your instrument for a bigger one as you grow!  Please consider the logistics of transporting an instrument of this size to and from your school.

    For the safety of our students and drivers, large musical instruments that are too large to be transported on school buses are not permitted.  This applies to cellos, percussion instruments and trombones.  If you have questions regarding the District's safety procedure regarding transporting musical instruments, information can be found on the Transportation page of the District website.
