    - 1 inch BLACK Binder and plastic sheet covers.
    - Pencils 
    - This years book is Habits of a Successful Middle School Musician (it is black and gold).  We will use this book for scales, warm-ups, and sight reading.  It is VERY important you have it each class.  Percussion, you will need to get the mallet book, and I will supplement the percussion book.  Music will be supplied for you in class.

    8th Grade Band Students will use the instrument they rented/bought from previous years.
