Valve 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.
Soft cloth for wiping down instrument (piece of an old t-shirt works great)
*Please note, if using a school instrument, purchasing your own mouthpiece is strongly recommended.* I recommend a Conn Helleberg or a Bach 7 (AKA Bach 3357). They are pricey but they’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.
Black Binder (.5 or 1-inch)
