The brass instruments will now begin a lesson on how to properly oil their instruments. From now on all brass players must have in their cases an absorbent cloth to be used exclusively for wiping off excess oil and moisture from their instrument. A piece of cotton material about the size of a standard face cloth should suffice.
All of the 8 elementary schools have now successfully demonstrated proper instrument assembly, playing position, hand position and proper tone production. Students will now be required to bring to each band class their band method book Standard of Excellence Book 1. Students should NOT bring their folding music stand to school.
