The vocation classes have suffered," says Jim Sleater, former music teacher at Sunnyside High School.
Sleater retired this summer after 31 years of teaching.
To help parents with costs, the Sunnyside School District began buying 10 to 12 instruments per year and introducing them to elementary school students, with the idea that they would use them all through middle school and high school as long as they stay in music.
That started about three years ago, Sleater says, and resulted in more interest in music in the younger grades.Next year's seventh-grade band should be bigger than usual, and the swell should reach the high school ranks in a few more years, he says.
The Grandview School District also purchases instruments, especially the more expensive ones like baritone saxophones, which can run $4,000 each.
Meanwhile, more music students are using their scarce elective hours for specific genres like jazz band, choir and mariachis.While overall music participation has waned, Grandview High School will offer two mariachi classes next fall, Sleater says.

Music teacher Jim Sleater and Sunnyside High School started the mariachi in fall 2002, after watching performances by a similar group from Wenatchee High School, one of the first schools in the state to offer such a program.
Sleater says the money is worth it because it's reaching students who otherwise would show no interest in music.He says only two or three students crossed over from the myriad of other musical programs, such as marching band, jazz ensemble and choir.
"I'm sure they're just going to keep springing up all over the state," Sleater says.
Sleater also expects the program to make its way into the younger grades.
Sleater, Mirro and Ferguson all had to learn as they taught, attending conferences whenever they could.
Still, music has a way of crossing cultural barriers, as well as language barriers, Sleater says.
