Band Testing Procedures for Covid-19


Meet the band directors This year students are NOT required to test every instrument.  We highly encourage them to at least hold each instrument so they know the feel and the weight of the instrument.  

We are using recommendations from our music dealer regarding safe testing of instruments.  We will have 2 mouthpieces for each instrument.  The mouthpiece will sit in 70% or higher concentration isopropyl rubbing alcohol for at least 30 seconds then rinsed with water and wiped down with a paper towel before a student tries to make a sound.  The teachers leading the testing process will wear a mask and gloves throughout the process.
