You would need to change the settings to treble (for flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet) or bass (for trombone, euphonium, tuba). You also need to turn off accidentals in settings. If you have questions please email Mr. Grimes.

We have also started our fund raiser. Students can choose to participate in the fundraiser by selling cheesecakes or by making a donation to the band program. If you are choosing to sell cheesecakes, please make sure you collect money as you sell. We will turn in money on September 18th and 19th. Delivery day will be some day in October. If you have questions please reach out to Mr. Grimes
