Supplies for Concert Band, Symphonic Band, and WInd Ensemble
Students in Concert Band, Symphonic Band, and Wind Ensemble will need the following items for band classes this year:
Black 1½” 3-ring binder. This will be a concert binder, so it needs to be solid black when facing the audience.
Eight tabbed dividers for your binder. We will label these in class during the first week of school. If you are reusing your binder from last year, please clean it out before this school year.
Personal Digital Tuner* with a Korg or Peterson Clip-On Pick-Up Microphone (excluding percussionists)
Metronome* (with subdivision)
Pencil and Highlighter
All trumpets should have an aluminum straight mute. Dennis Wick is preferred, Tom Crown is an alternate.
Wind Ensemble and Symphonic trombones should have an aluminum straight mute. Tom Crown is preferred, Dennis Wick is an alternate (opposite of trumpet above).
Percussionists have slightly different needs that were included in the information provided to you at the end of the school year. Click here for percussion supply lists.
*The Korg TM-50 Tuner/Metronome Combo is highly recommended for all woodwind and brass players, since it contains both the metronome and tuner in a user-friendly package. Either the Korg or Peterson Pick-Ups will be fine.
