Required Text

Members of all three bands must provide their own copy of:

Foundations for Superior Performance, by Richards Williams and Jeff King. It is published by Kjos Music and available at many larger music stores. Not available in Nacogdoches.

Required Dress

Due to the current policy restricting large gatherings, we are in all likelihood not going to be performing any formal concerts this semester. Therefore, tuxedos are not required for Fall 2020. If there are any performances, dress code will be addressed at that time.
