An extremely limited supply of school instruments may be available for students who cannot rent from a store, but music stores have better instruments and can offer opportunities for insurance, repairs, and rent-to-own that our school cannot.All band students need a KMS Band polo shirt. These are only available through the school; please see Ms. Saunders for orders. The same polo may be used all 3 years of middle school.6th grade/ 1st year 7th grade will use the book Accent on Achievement book 1 and receive additional warm ups and performance music in class.2nd year 7th grade will use the book Accent on Achievement book 2 and receive additional warm ups and performance music in class.Advanced Band (all 8th grade and some 7th grade) will work entirely on performance music and will not use a band method book.
