The brass instruments valves and slides are getting sticky. They need a proper bath.
Supplies: trumpet or trombone cleaning “snake.” You can order one from Leonards Music (where you possibly rent from). They call the kit a Trumpet Maintenance Kit and a Trombone Maintenance Kit.
Here is a pdf to notate how to do this.
If your student plays clarinet or saxophone, please ask them if they need reeds. I’ve noticed more than one person without extras.
Amazing job at the All Town Band Concert. I was especially impressed with Ode to Joy. Keep up the good work. Next Concert is May 1st.
This year the All Town Band Concert will be on Tuesday, March 6th. This is a chance for the younger grades to hear all of the different levels of band (middle school and high school) and a chance to play with friends from other Burlington elementary schools. It’s a fun night hosted by the Burlington High School at their big wooden gymnasium. See you there.
