•   E Logo                   Recommended Solos



    This page has been developed to provide students with a list of solos that students can purchase from our local music store to help improve their technique.  These resources have been recommended by many band directors and music teachers from around the world.  It is my hope that our students will be able to use these resources to their maximum potential.  The solos listed can be used for college auditions.  This page will be updated as new solos are recommended/found.
