    As it is winter, many of my elementary school students come to school with colds. This poses a challenge for my violin program, because students must share instruments. A first grader with a cold will pick his nose, not even aware of what he is doing, and then play a school owned violin- which is later passed onto another student. Some of my classes require students to use hand sanitizer at the beginning of class to help keep germs from spreading, but I am wondering if there are any other ideas when it comes to sanitizing instruments or seeing germs from spreading through shared instruments….

    Hi Everyone!
    Does anyone know where I can find a count of the total number of band programs currently operating in the United States? Thanks for your help.
