What Educators Are Saying About This Product

“I loved how I didn’t have to get out multiple instrument cases when testing students. The kit gave a realistic feel for the students as they tried them and were very easy to clean.”

Emily Henderson

Band Director, Arcola Schools

“I found them really helpful with students being able to compare the different ways instruments make sound, and especially given the current situation with sanitization and the ease of cleaning these provided it was really beneficial. Obviously, nothing can be equivalent to the actual mouthpieces, but this was the next best thing, especially for reed instruments!”

Sarah Foery

Band Director, West York School District

“The kits really helped our instrument interview process. The Jupiter Mouthpiece Kits helped the students imagine their success on an instrument they were interested in, even without playing it”

Phil Kagan

4th and 5th Grade Instrumental Team, Quincy Public Schools

“I’m very excited for the opportunity to use this product. I like how easy they will be to clean and sanitize for the safety of reusing on multiple students when traveling to elementary schools for mouthpiece testing.  Packing and traveling to the schools or setting up for a testing event will be much easier.”

Tonia Mathews

Band Director, Clint Small Middle School (TX)

“This is a game changer for music educators. The ability to assess a student’s suitability for an instrument virtually, or in a class setting, it’s ease of transport, and the simplified nature of the product are exactly what we need right now!”

Mandy DeShrage

Band Director, Syosset (NY) Public Schools, Conductor, Nassau-Suffolk Performing Arts Honor Band

“If there ever was a perfect time for a product like this, it is now!  A wonderful way to help recruit students in a safe, easy to sanitize, and productive way. Whether used in a virtual environment, or in person, it will greatly improve our ability to recruit students in the world we find ourselves!”
