Welcome To Band!

       The upcoming year at Rogers-Herr will be exciting and busy.  Students will have many opportunities to expand their musical talents.  We will be getting the jazz band up and running shortly as well as the pep band.  Before you know it, it will be time for our winter and spring concerts.  Some students will have the opportunity to participate in All-County Band in November, and audition for All-District band in January.  In the spring, 7th and 8th grade band students will participate in our performance trip to Kings Dominion or Carowinds.

            Don’t worry; everyone will be notified well in advance of all the events listed above as well as any changes or additions.  Also, feel free to call or e-mail me at school if you should have any questions or concerns about the band program.

            Please understand that our band program is only as strong as the parents and students who support it!  Contact me if you are interested in participating in the RHMS Music Booster Organization.

          Feel free to call me (919-886-4147) or e-mail me (renada_cammon@dpsnc.net) if you have any questions or concerns about the band program.

               Please use the Remind app to make sure that you know what is going on in your child’s band class.

   New students will need to have a reliable instrument every day for online instruction.  I am working with two music companies that can provide rentals, repair services, and supplies for your child’s instrument (Hill’s Music Shoppe and Music & Arts Centers).   Please remember---students are not allowed to start percussion as a beginner.

            Students will need the following items for band class:

1.  Essential Elements Method Book 1, for their instrument.  (This is used every day in class.)

2.  Folding music stand (or something at home that will hold a method book/music.)

3.  If you play the flute, you will need a polish cloth to clean fingerprints off the instrument, a small brush to remove dust from keys, and a small cloth to clean the inside with your flute rod.


4.  If you play the clarinet or alto saxophone, you will need at least three good reeds at all times, cork grease, a small brush to remove dust from keys, and a swab to clean saliva from your instrument.  Saxophone players also need a neck strap and a polish cloth.


5.  If you play the trumpet or trombone, you will need to have valve oilslide oil/slide grease, and a polish cloth to clean fingerprints from your instrument.
