4th Grade Band Notice

Hello Francis Wyman 4th Grade Band members, parents and guardians,

I hope you had a good year in band.  It was very exciting learning all those songs and performing for so many people.  I really enjoyed it myself.  The students worked really hard and excelled at so many things.  I am very proud of them.

As far as returning instruments,  if your student is NOT doing band next year, please notify Leonard’s Music ASAP. You’ll want to cancel your lease as soon as possible and give them time to pick up the instrument.  

However, if your student is like most and wants to continue into next year, you need not do anything. Also, returning students that are renting from Leonard’s Music should not return the instrument for the summer.  You will lose all the money you’ve paid so far in order to eventually own it.  If you have any questions, go to the Leonard’s Music website:  https://leonardsmusic.myshopify.com/pages/contact-us

Time to give your brass instrument a bath

This is only for trumpets and trombones.  All woodwinds have a cloth swab in their cases to wipe the instrument clean.  Do not put flutes, clarinets or saxes in water!!!!!

Brass Cleaning (once a month)

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.
