SUPPLY LIST for FRENCH HORN
Instrument – School will supply, please complete this School Loan Form
Label – Include first and last name, school, and contact phone # – (Luggage tags work well)
Rotor Oil and Slide Grease should come with your instrument. Should you run out over the course of the year, please replace it with the same products. Horn students need to be careful about using the correct oil — it is different from all other brass oils!
*Please note, if using a school instrument, purchasing your own mouthpiece is strongly recommended. I recommend a Holton Farkas, either H2850DC, or H2850MC. It is pricey but it’ll last forever, and with instruments, you get what you pay for. If you buy a cheap mouthpiece it will directly impact your student’s enjoyment of playing — making it more challenging and difficult than it needs to be! The school has SOME mouthpieces, but with Covid, we’re asking families to consider purchasing their own to avoid any accidental sharing.
Soft cloth for wiping down instrument (piece of an old t-shirt works great)
Black Binder (.5 or 1-inch)
15 – 20 clear protective sheets
