Homework & Announcements

This Week:

Welcome Back! I hope everybody has had a great break!

Homework 

  • Make sure that you have all needed supplies for your instrument; Woodwinds: Instrument, Cleaning rag, Reeds (except flute), Cork Grease (except flute). Brass: Instrument, Cleaning Kit (should include Slide Oil/Grease, Valve Oil, Cleaning Snake) Percussion: Bells, Snare, Drum Sticks, Bell Sticks. - Must be ordered by Monday, January 11th.

I recommend using Hill City Music for all equipment purchases as they travel to campus for repair, cleaning, and purchase dropoff/pickups. Please remember when searching for an instrument online, you normally get the quality that you pay for, if you are purchasing a used instrument or receiving an old instrument you should take it to a repair shop for needed repairs and cleaning before playing it.
