EVERY member of the band MUST have access to a tuner and a metronome!

(Percussionists do not need a tuner right now.)

Especially for the Beginning Band, we recommend an app that was written by a band director called "BANDMATE CHROMATIC TUNER."  It is the only app that transposes the notes that your student plays on THIER instrument.  This app solves a problem faced by beginners on clarinet, trumpet, saxophones, and French horn (ESPECIALLY French horns!)

It is free, and available on both Apple and Android platforms.

Do NOT clean your instrument before going to our "CLEANING" page!

  • There is no need to fear that you will contract Covid-19 from your instrument, just like any illness, unless you have allowed someone to play it who is a carrier!  One of the instructions about your instruments included the rule that NOBODY is to handle your instrument.  (Remember? "If it's not yours, don't touch it!)  Now, it IS very logical that we should clean our instruments periodically.  If you haven't cleaned your mouthpiece for over a month, that should be a priority!

  • I have added a new page to our site dedicated to proper care and cleaning of your instruments.
  • Remember:  the hardest part of practicing is actually STARTING!  Putting the remote down can be TOUGH!  I get it!  But, with only 20 minutes per day, you will be amazed at how much you improve!
8th Grade Bandlings!

Thanks to one of your clarinet players, I've found a piece for your Spring Concert in 2021!

He suggested that we would like to listen to Antonin Dvorak's "Slovanic Dances," which is a great piece!  There is a and arrangement that "sits" well for us, too!

Just click on Antonin's face, and it will take you to JWPepper, where you can watch the score as you listen!

Just a friendly reminder:

     Unless they have permission from the ensemble's director, members do NOT change their instruments.  No, this isn't an issue right now.  Quite honestly, it's just a simple reminder before it becomes an issue in the future.

     (It's akin to a football player deciding on their own that they aren't going to be a receiver, anymore, and they are going to, instead, be the quarterback.)
