Because every school keeps spare Kevlar on hand. Most people go through one set of Kevlar Batter side heads a week..... (just playing)

My typical Bag:
-Laptop w/ Sibelius
-Two pairs of snare sticks
-Tenor sticks (Im a tenor guy)
-A metronome
-Black Binder with Sheet music/scores/Warmups/Attendance Roster
-A roll of white electrical tape
-Baffles (expensive ear plugs)
-A pair of wrist bands
-A pair of socks
-Either tennis shoes or Flip flops (whichever I am not wearing)
-Practice Pad (or two) in case one of my kids doesnt have theirs
-I usually carry the long ranger with me (Wont fit in my bookbag)
-A snack to eat in front of the kids to assert my authority....
-My chops
-Intolerance for SUCKAGE
-Ability to fix the suckage when it occurs and the ability to fight the innevitable dissappointment.

That is just me.
And how big exactly is your bag?

....I'd appreciate no jokes concerning this post 8)

someone's music flew away in the wind and I ran to go get it, this was the first week of school my freshman year
we were rehearsing in the parking lot on stands, in a bass sectional
before I could make it back with the music, the wind picked up my drum and slammed it into the asphault, it bounced and landed in a nearby bush, almost hitting a school bus
I shat myself, both rims were snapped in half
I was lucky our band director was out there with us, but I had to tell my bass tech later that night
that day, I became a man

That really sucks, did you get it repaired or did you just buy a new drum?

lol my friend was eating a bag of chips when our band director said for the drumline to relax so he could work with some of the winds and our drumline tech said to give them to him and do push ups for eating and while he was doing push ups our tech ate the rest. Then he gave the bag back. lol. It was hilarious.

i would recommend just a pair of sticks, a drum key, a metronome, and a copy of the book and drill charts (if applicable). i don't think the tools are necessary because i just keep a toolbox in the back of my car so that they are accessible when something is broken pretty majorly.

A backpack!!! Every great instructor I've had carries a backpack. I try and do the same. Nothing relevant tends to be in my bag, though...... :/

I usually have an empty thermus of coffee, a binder of my college assignments, a full thermus in hand, maybe a pair of sticks. Just so it looks cool, ya' know? I jack stuff from kids.

beats
I play and teach music (sometimes even band music!)

I work in music tech and licensing.

Music is an art and positive energy.
