Wish List

Below is a "Wish List" for the student musician that can enhance and propel the student's musical experience/journey.  The list includes instrument accessories, maintenance supplies, music books, & CDs. The YSD1 directors will be happy to provide assistance in acquiring these items, and/or listing brands or sizes to look for. 

If you are looking for a new instrument for your student, please seek guidance from your band director, and from the  RECOMMENDED UPGRADE INSTRUMENT LIST.  Your band director will help to ensure that your dollars are being invested into quality equipment.  Many times, if it seems too good to be true…it probably is!  Most times directors are able to get special educator discounts on instruments and equipment (including some of the items below) and they glad to pass these discounts along to you!
