Palen consultant opportunity for parents.

Palen Music Center needs help with instrument rental nights!

The “job description” is:

  • Attend a training session on how to rent instruments.

Training sessions (REQUIRED – even if you trained last year)
Tuesday, August 6th from 6 to 8 PM at the Springdale Palen store.
Thursday, August 8th from 6 to 8 PM at the Springdale Palen store.

**We can set-up an in-school training session for Booster clubs**

You are required to complete one training, but it is preferred that you attend both if possible.

  • Arrive on time to the rental display location.

  • Help set up the rental display area.

  • Rent instruments one-on-one to customers.

  • Help tear down the rental display area.

They will pay the band boosters $9.00 per consultant per hour worked. Most of the sessions will be 6 hour blocks. That would put $54 in your student’s account for each night worked. Three nights plus training could get you $198 for your student’s account! You can pick and choose and work the dates that fit. Palen takes care of the transportation to and from these schools. I think this is a great way to earn money for student accounts instead of selling frozen food. This will be a recurring opportunity next year as well! If you are interested in taking advantage of this, please email Amy Hinkson at She will email you a Google Doc to fill out that lists your availability.  You will then receive a schedule that lets you know what dates they will need your help.  If you have any questions about rental nights, please email or call Amy (479) 387-4820.

Consultants from BWHS who helped last year are listed below.  Feel free to discuss with them to see if this is something you would be interested in.
