Supply List 

There is a $10 fee for Orchestra students in Onslow County. This covers both semesters of Orchestra and is payable to Swansboro Middle School. Please give this money to your homeroom teacher and KEEP YOUR RECEIPT.

All Orchestra students need the following materials:

  • Instrument, bow, rosin, and case (called "outfit")--check with Ms. Zimmerman for appropriate size
  • Method Book (see below)
  • Shoulder rest for violins and violas
  • Endpin anchor ("rock stop") for cellos and basses
  • White dress shirt, black dress pants or skirt (longer than knee length), black dress shoes for concert

Method Books:

  • 6th Grade:  Essential Elements Book 1
  • 7th Grade:  Basic Music Theory and History for Strings by Wendy Barden & Terry Shade (published by Kjos)
  • 8th Grade:  No method book this year :)

Please contact me AS SOON AS POSSIBLE if you need help getting any of these materials.  I am almost always able to help if I have enough time to organize resources.
