Thank you very much for encouraging your child to study music. Your child has tried out on the various instrument mouthpieces and did best on:
To participate in our band class, your child will need an instrument, and a Standard of Excellence Book I for that instrument. (I will be happy to order books for any who would like one. Please use the form on the back of this letter.) The following accessories are also recommended.
Flute – cleaning rod and cloth
Clarinet – a swab or pad savers, reeds (2 or 2 1/2 strength)
Alto Sax - a swab or pad savers, reeds (2 or 2 1/2 strength)
Trumpet – a snake, valve oil
Trombone – a snake, slide cream
As stated at Back to School Night, there are numerous options for getting an instrument for your child to play this year. WMS has some instruments to loan. Of course, our instruments will be offered to families who have a financial need first. (Please let me know if this applies to you if you haven’t already). A lottery for any remaining WMS instruments will be held on Monday August 31, or Tuesday, September 1st. Information about instrument rental options is attached to this letter. WMS instruments will be offered to families with a financial need first. As always, please feel free to write or call with any questions.
Please order me a Standard of Excellence Book I. Attached is $8.00 to cover the cost of the book, tax and shipping.
