For those renting a school owned instrument (this would include all percussionists as a use fee) the cost is $80.00 for the year. When you receive the rental form, please read the form, sign it, and return the form along with a check (payable to Sinagua Music Department), or cash to us at the school.
In addition to the rental fee, percussionists are responsible for the following items: stick bag, concert snare sticks, hard rubber bell mallets (no metal), medium hard (yellow yarn) xylophone mallets, timpani mallets (med. hard), triangle beater, and a pitch pipe. Arizona Music Pro has most of the items packaged as a set. The rest is sold separately. Please call us at 527-5500 if you have any questions.
Lastly, please fill out the emergency consent form and return it to us. It is important that we have these forms returned ASAP.
We look forward to meeting everyone, and are sure this will be a very productive year.
