Music Binder

As a member of the BOTW, you will have 2 music binders:
1.  General Music Binder:  to be used to store music we are working on or have played in the past.  Purchase a white 1.5” binder with clear insert on front.  Print out your music binder cover here and insert your name and instrument on bottom right corner.

2.  Performance Music Binder:  This will be used for the music you are playing for a specific performance and will only hold music on that set list. We will issue you this binder and you only need to print out the music binder cover here.
