All beginners receive Book 1 of our LJ Hutchen method book series. The band director will introduce LJ Hutchen Book 2 when educationally appropriate.

It often requires two years to successfully master each book. More challenging materials are given to advanced student musicians who have completed both books in our series.

If your child loses their method book, a new one can be purchased from your child’s teacher for $7. If an experienced student has not received a new lesson book during the present school year, he/she is entitled to one book at no cost if the book is lost.
