6th Grade Band

If you are interested in joining the 6th grade band for the 2020-2021 school year, please watch this slideshow that will give you information about the program.

        The 2020-2021 school year at Rogers-Herr will definitely be different!  I know that you are asking yourself--“How is my child going to learn to play their instrument online?”  Do not worry; I promise I will provide proper instruction and resources to your child in order for them to learn how to play and take care of their instrument correctly!

           New students will need to have a reliable instrument every day for online instruction.  I am working with two music companies that can provide rentals, repair services, and supplies for your child’s instrument (Hill’s Music Shoppe and Music & Arts Centers).   Please remember---students are not allowed to start percussion as a beginner.

            Students will need the following items for band class:

1.  Essential Elements Method Book 1, for their instrument.  (This is used every day in class.)

2.  Folding music stand (or something at home that will hold a method book/music.)

3.  If you play the flute, you will need a polish cloth to clean fingerprints off the instrument, a small brush to remove dust from keys, and a small cloth to clean the inside with your flute rod.


4.  If you play the clarinet or alto saxophone, you will need at least three good reeds at all times, cork grease, a small brush to remove dust from keys, and a swab to clean saliva from your instrument.  Saxophone players also need a neck strap and a polish cloth.


5.  If you play the trumpet or trombone, you will need to have valve oil, slide oil/slide grease, and a polish cloth to clean fingerprints from your instrument.
