Welcome to the Webb Bridge Middle School Orchestra!

 

I am excited to be the orchestra teacher here, and I am thrilled to have all of you in my class. Below is Orchestra supply list. Please be certain that you obtain the supplies as soon as possible.

 

Violins and Violas:

 

Instrument, bow, and case

Essential Elements Book I (6th Grade) Book II (7th Grade) Book III (8th Grade)

Shoulder pad

Rosin and cleaning cloth

Wire stand (optional, but highly recommended)

 

Violins and Violas: A limited supply of school instruments is offered for a suggested $25.00 fee. Since these instruments are limited, please reserve these instruments for families with strong financial need. It is recommended that students secure their own instruments from an instrument dealer.

 

Cellos and Basses

 

Instrument, bow, and case

Essential Elements Book I (6th Grade) Book II (7th Grade) Book III (8th Grade)

Rock stop

Rosin and cleaning cloth (Basses please purchase bass rosin)

Wire stand (optional, but highly recommended)

 

Cellos and Basses: These students do not need to bring their instruments to school. We will have instruments at school for students to use during the day. In most cases, I can also supply an instrument for home practice ($50.00/year fee). However, if possible students are encouraged to obtain their own home instrument from an instrument dealer.

 

Welcome again!
