Equipment for Band Classes

A reminder to all students entering Symphonic Band (Grade 10 Band) to make sure to upgrade your mouthpiece and ligature over the summer.  All band students should have tuner or metronome apps on their phones of iPods/iPads, or they should have an actual physical tuner and metronome for class and home practice.  Check the
equipment page for more details.
