SuppliesPublished: 2018-06-06 12:45:06 by jsmith
We don't sell or provide supplies for students. They are responsible for maintaining any and all items needed to be able to perform successfully.
Every student should have a pencil every day. Many students are more successful with a binder and page protectors than the paper Schmidt's folder we gave them - add a pencil pouch with holes punched in it and you have everything in one spot!
Students/parents can buy all the instrument supplies they need at any of the local music stores: Schmidt's Music, Blues Angel Music, Leitz Music, and Tringas Music. Brass students will need their own valve oil, tuning slide grease, etc. Anyone that plays a reed instrument will need to provide their own reeds and cork grease. Anyone playing a school-owned wind instrument must provide their own mouthpiece. Percussion students will need to purchase their own sticks, mallets, etc., though they should check with Mr. Lawrence Young to see what brand/model he recommends.
Looking to upgrade a wind instrument? Go try some step-up mouthpieces! They can make a HUGE difference without the cost of an intermmediate or advanced level instrument.
Speak to instructors if you'd like brand or model recommendations!
