Include a table that show the predicted total cost for winds, percussion, and miscellaneous items over the next five years. These will be significant amounts. A reminder that there are several factors the may have a direct impact on these numbers and could increase or decrease the total cost per year. Generally, the cost predictions will be higher than the actual cost. The numbers could also be very realistic if the band program should maintain or even increase retention rates. The actual growth versus the projected growth can have an affect on the numbers as well as actual instrumentation versus projected instrumentation.
