Things every Quinn band students should have:

-tuner for a wind instrument (my recommendation is a Korg)
-a box or two of reeds at all times (size 2.5 or higher---size 3 recommended for 7th graders)
(If you are looking to upgrade to a more reliable/quality reed brand, I would go with Vandoren Blue or Silver Box)
-folding music stand for at-home practice
-metronome (can use online apps or websites instead)
-valve oil
-slide grease
-cork grease (for clarinet, oboe, saxophones)
-straight mute (for brass)
-staff paper for composition (provided at school for free)
-Rubank or Endresen method books
-Duet books
