Band Rental Night for New Band Students
On Tuesday, September 14, 2021, we will be having our rental night for students interested in joining the band. For our rentals, we use The Music Shoppe out of Normal, IL. A rep from the store will be here to handle the rentals. This same rep also comes to the school every Tuesday if you need something from the store. If you want to check out the rental prices or start a rental you can visit their website www.themusicshoppe.com
Please be aware that instruments bought cheap on Amazon may or may not play. I have seen a few instruments that worked well but have also seen instruments break before a student can play a note. But please do not let price be the reason your student does not join the band. Contact me and I will work with you to find a solution.
If you have any questions about renting an instrument please reach out to me.
If you are unable come on the 14th, the link below will show you how to rent online.

Wipe Out! - Panther Band - 2019 Winter Concert
The Panther Band performing Wipe Out! at the winter concert. We played Wipe Out! because a former principal told me that any song could be made into a holiday song just by adding sleigh bells. You can decide for yourself by listening and seeing if it is true.
