Here is a checklist of what is needed for band:
John Keal Music: phone#-(518)482-4405/website- www.johnkealmusic.com
Valley Music: phone#-724-1199
Big Apple Music: phone#- 732-4162/website- www.bigapplemusic.com
Oboes- I suggest getting a brand name of Gower or Renard double reed, medium soft.
Clarinets/saxophones- you will need at least 3 good reeds at all times. I suggest a reed brand called Rico and a strength of 3. Ask for "Rico 3's".
Brass- be sure you have valve/slide oil.
Percussion- Have at least 2 pair of drumsticks. One pair in your locker and the other at home.
