Instrument Maintenance

If you notice something that is not working correctly with your instrument, please inform your director. Do not try to fix the problem yourself! The directors have equipment made specifically for common instrument issues. If it is something the directors are unable to repair, we will send the instrument in to have it repaired professionally. The repair shops will call you with an estimate for the repair so you can decide if it is worth it to go forward with the repair.

Supplies

We are very fortunate to have a music store here in Fergus Falls. Harmony Studios has all the oils, reeds, books, and other supplies you need for your instrument. Please support local business by purchasing your supplies from them. In addition, Harmony Studios offers private lessons if you would like to take additional lessons outside of school.

New & Reconditioned Instruments

The music company that the band department goes through is Schmitt Music. Their nearest store is in Fargo, but if you purchase anything from them they will deliver it to school for free. They also pick up instruments for repairs twice a week so you never need to drive them up yourself.
