Now that we are reading music well and learning new things about music.....it is time to start playing full band songs. Which means students need a 1-inch 3-ring binder of any color and about 20 plastic sheet protectors. This binder (we sometimes call it the "bander") can be kept in the bandroom cabinets or in the student's locker. We will begin using them on Monday, February 12. If you need help getting these items, just let me know!Instruments you don't have to purchase - Tuba, Baritone, and French Horn (Unless you just want to spend several thousand dollars!) There is a $75/year maintenance fee for these school instruments. It can be paid in installments if needed. Please make checks payable to HEJH band. If you need financial assistance please contact the band director, we can help!The book we use each day in class is called "Traditions of Excellence" and is specific for each instrument. It costs approximately $11 and we use it every day. It can be purchased at several online sites as well as local music stores.Tests are usually on Mondays though there will be some variation now and then.Makeups are welcome! Just call the band voicemail at 405 735 4591 (state your name clearly and begin playing)
