Hi Cape May City Band members! 


I know everyone is concerned with keeping their instruments clean and free of germs at all times, but especially now.  


This is a link to a site with instructions on how to care for and clean your instruments, please click on your instrument when you get to the page and you will find videos and instructions on keeping your instrument clean and in the best condition:


I hope you are playing your instruments and not letting them be lonely in the

case!  You have your lesson books and your Band music for the Star Wars Theme to practice so we will have music ready to play when we are together again! 

I am looking into virtual lessons with those who may be interested and maybe a virtual band session for us! Let me know if you would be interested! 

I sure miss the beating of the drums and the sounds of all of you practicing and saying Good morning, as you come in the door for your lessons or Band!  I hope you and your families are staying home and are well.  Play on.......
