Follow these steps to get ready for class this year:

Getting ready for Band and Orchestra EZ as 123! <<<<select this to get started and then select supplied links or follow instructions below>>>>

  1. Watch the instrument information videos if you are new this year (Click Here)

  2. Decide on your instrument (given the current situation, returning 5th grade students are STRONGLY encouraged to stay with the same instrument this year that they played last year).

  3. Make arrangements to get instrument, book, and materials . You can rent instruments from several reputable dealers in our area online. They can deliver the school, or you can pick up. Of course, you can also stop by a store, too. Click here for a listing of local instrument retailers.

  4. Sign up for class ASAP. Use this link to access the online registration form Click Here to Sign Up

Finally....

Mr. Weedman's "sage" instrument advice:Your student needs a quality instrument to be successful. We will not have classroom time to constantly fix slipping string pegs made out of soft wood, adjust bridges fit poorly, unstick valves that were machined lopsided from soft metal, or search for woodwind parts that constantly fall out , etc. As we say every year...BEWARE of ISO's (Instrument Shaped Objects) from worldwide online retailers. For years they have beckoned parents and students like sirens in the sea. However, they are likely of poor construction, they are not assembled well, and materials used are not durable. Playing one is like driving a car with triangle wheels. It just doesn't make sense. Yes, the ones for a really great price from the online company that is named after a South American rain forest are most likely ISO's. Please, please, please avoid ISO's.
