All brass are required to own a cleaning kit and valve oil for their particular instrument. To maintain sanitation and working condition of the instrument, they should be flushed out and scrubbed with kit at least once per month. 8th grade generally need to “step up” to a slightly larger mouthpiece due to muscle development. We ask that 6th graders purchase their own mouthpiece even if they are renting a school owned instrument. Grease is needed for the slides to remain in working order, they should NEVER dry out. There is commercial slide grease, but I personally just use Vaseline.


Sticks-size 2B and acrylic mallets. Students may also purchase their own timpani mallets or a timpani tuner. Jazz percussion may want to purchase brushes as well.
