    Music Essentials Checklist

    It’s back-to-school time! Many of you are already back in the classroom while other teachers are gearing up for the first day. That means it’s time to gather the supplies you need to be ready to start making music.

    To make things a little easier, we’ve compiled a checklist of orchestra and band essentials your students can use to stock up on the accessories they need. Share this checklist with your students – print and distribute copies or send them this link to the PDF. There is a separate checklist for each section in your ensembles – your brass players, your winds, the percussion section, and your strings.

    There are a couple of other ways to help them get what they need. We’ve built a back-to-school music essentials catalog, and of course there are dedicated accessory pages for everyone:

    Brass players

    Woodwinds

    Percussionists

    String players

    Marching band

    Another back-to-school necessity: method books! No need to scramble around looking for them, we have all the methods you need!

    Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments if there’s an item you always suggest your students have to start the year!
