A young aspiring saxophone player from the US has been told he can't carry his trusted instrument on the school bus because it's too big.

Andrew DiMarzio, 12, from Massachusetts, was told by Lucini Bus Lines that his saxophone is a safety hazard, especially when the bus is at full capacity.

The young musician, who has been playing his instrument for over a year now, is now left with a challenging predicament – how to get to band practice.

Speaking to Fox News, his mother, Cathy DiMarzio, said: "I either have to quit my job if I want him in band or he has to give up band. That's not feasible.

"I don't see why they can't bring another bus down here. I am willing to work with them, but they're clearly not willing to work with me. He's not a problem child -- he's trying to do good things here."

She added the saxophone was about the same size as an average backpack and could easily fit under a seat.
