School Supply Information

 

Through our long standing relationships with local teachers and their music programs, we have compiled a list of products students need for success. Feel free to search for the books or accessories at the top of the page for purchase. 

 

If you are renting an instrument from us, please note that all clarinets and saxes come with an internal cleaning swab and cork grease. All trumpets, trombones, French horns, and euphoniums come with the necessary oil. Slide grease and slide cream is not included.
