Here we go! The first day of school will be here before we know it. Here are things to help you be ready for the first day...
The Band Handbook goes through procedures, grading, event calendar, and more. Several things have changed from past years, so make sure to check it out.
Now is a good time to have your child test their instrument to make sure it is in good playing condition. If it needs maintenance or repair you should get it into the shop right away. It will take the shop 1-2 weeks minimum since it's a busy time of year for instrument repair. You can contact Meyer Music for repair questions at 816-228-5656.
It is also a good time to make sure your child has all the extra supplies they will need. The Meyer Music online school store recently updated and doesn't have all of our normal supplies. I recommend calling Meyer Music and requesting to purchase over the phone. They can deliver your items to school on their next visit. You can also pick items up directly from one of their locations.
What supplies do we need?
New Band Families
Still need an instrument and supplies?
Most families use the rent-to-own program through Meyer Music. It helps you get the right equipment quickly and easily. Go to www.meyermusic.com and click Rentals. You can take care of everything online. If you have questions about the program, contact Meyer Music at 816-228-5656. In most cases, your instrument and supplies will be ready and waiting for your child on the first day of school.
Meyer Music will also be available from 5:30-7:00pm on August 19 at South Middle School. You can set up your rent-to-own program at that time.
