• Materials and Supplies

     

    All band students need the book, “Standard of Excellence”, Book 1.

     

    All students must come to lessons with the following supplies:

    Pencil

    Folder

    Practice sheet:  completed and initialed by a parent

    Standard of Excellence Book 1

     

    Each instrument has its own needs.  They are listed below:

    FLUTE:                 handkerchief

    OBOE:                   extra reeds (I like the Jones brand Medium)

    CLARINET:          reeds (strength 2 ½) and a reedguard

    SAXOPHONE:      reeds (strength 2 ½) and a reedguard

    TRUMPET:           valve oil, slide grease, small cloth

    FRENCH HORN:  valve oil, slide grease, small cloth

    TROMBONE:       SLIDE oil, slide grease, small cloth

    EUPHONIUM:      valve oil, slide grease, small cloth

     

    As the first part of the curriculum is instrument assembly, care and maintenance, it is important for you to get these supplies immediately!
