NEW INITIATIVES IN BAND

INSTRUMENT UPGRADE LIST
There is a risk in purchasing an instrument without the guidance of a band director, a repair specialist or a music store.  The music store stands behind their instruments with quality assurances.  The repair specialist has seen a wide variety of brands that don't stand up well under normal use and those that are a good investment of money.

The list below is one that Band Directors across the nation have had a chance to review and support.  If you see an instrument on eBay or Craigslist and you wonder if it is a good value, please review this document as a starting point.  



LESSON CURRICULUM
Students in band will be given a progressive, focused curriculum of improvement through more opportunities with lessons.  Guided practice is the best method of encouraging improvement.  

Information will be posted here very soon.  Mr. Campbell is very excited about this new opportunity for students.  Jump in and take advantage of lessons.  Continue your journey in band with guided improvement opportunities!
