*All members should report and be ready to provide payment for band fees. This is an essential part for participation. If you have questions about this or need to make payment arrangements you must email Mr. Taylor at prior to camp. Dues are $400 a person. If you have not purchased band shoes or bib pants, please add an additional $85 to your band dues. If you are a new member you are also responsible for a one- time payment of $150 for a uniform rental fee. You will be asked to pay these upon check-in. In addition, if you are using a school instrument you must provide payment of $35 for instrument rental before you will be issued an instrument. This is mandatory for Tuba, Baritone, and Mellophone (French horn). If you are in guard, there will be additional costs, likely an additional $250 per person to purchased your uniform. Any trips (i.e. DCI Show) will cost extra outside of the band dues.  Any student who made All West Band will have $50 deducted from their band fees the following school year.  This will include the new students to the band.  Mr. Taylor will have a list of students who will have a reduced fee.
