    General Band Reminders:
    1.  Instruments other than euphoniums, tubas, and percussion should be going home for individual practice most days of the week.  Anytime car riders can take home tubas and euphoniums is beneficial as well.  Practice at home is essential to improvement!  Percussion students should have their own drum sticks (Vic Firth SD-1 is recommended brand) daily in class.
     
    2.  All students should have a 3-ring binder (black preferred) that is dedicated to band only, and contains all music, books, and handouts they receive in class.  These should be brought to class every day along with a pencil.
     
    3. Unless otherwise instructed, personal technology is not needed for rehearsal, and are not allowed at your child's seat while in class/rehearsal.
