Beginning Band Students: Need help deciding what instrument to play?

Mr. Moddison will be available to let you try out various instruments and can help you decide which you are best suited for.


Note: AMS has a limited supply of instruments available. The school year rental fee is $75 and will be rented
first based on a financial need, and then by availability on a first-come, first-served basis. Instruments can also be
rented from, Larry's Music in Medford, or Taylor Music in South Dakota (1-800-USA-BAND).

Concert Band Students: Hopefully you have all practiced some over the summer and know the needs of
your instruments. If not, then pull out those instruments and get yourself and your instrument ready for
band! Now is the time to make any necessary repairs or obtain any instrument specific supplies you may
need like reeds, instrument cleaning tools, grease, etc.

Please bring your instruments on the first day of band and be ready to play some music!
