•  Wagner Orchestras Supply List 2021-2022


    Please have the following supplies for a supplies check by Monday, August 23rd, 2021. If you have any problems getting the supplies, please either e-mail, call, or send a physical note with your student before that Monday. On the opposite side are a few places where you should be able to purchase all of these supplies. The reverse also has a list of recommended supplies and books. These items are not required.


    *Rosin-light or dark for violin, dark for viola & cello 

    *Carlsson bass rosin for basses 

    *A cloth to clean the instrument.

    *A shoulder pad for the violin and viola players. I recommend purchasing a good quality shoulder rest instead of the sponge. However, a sponge is acceptable if a shoulder rest is not in your price range. Please purchase a shoulder rest that is made for the instrument size. Ex. 4/4 size violin uses a 4/4 size shoulder rest. Shoulder rests are crucial to maintain proper posture. Here are some recommendations: Kun Wolfe Viva Everest

    *All cello and bass students should purchase a rock stop. Suggestion: one for home, one for school.

    *Bass players: please purchase fine gauge steel wool. No soap!

    *Pencil.  It is crucial to have a pencil in class at all times!

    *Optional: plastic page protectors

    *Habits of the Successful Orchestra Musician for your instrument

    *Beginners: Sound Innovations for your instrument


    Thank you for your cooperation,

    Music Stores

    I suggest calling any music store to confirm they have all you need before going.  Sometimes stores run out of things, and they also don’t have every school’s list. Also, these are just a few that are within a 30 minute drive of Wagner.  There are more stores in SA, so by no means do you have to go to these stores. Also, see the bottom for online websites that should have the supplies you need.
