Many students at our school scratch out a musical existence on their own. Some are qualified drummers who perform in niche bands or annual talent shows. Many more are aspiring musicians who need access to free, basic musical education. These drumsticks and practice pads will help our school start a passionate but unfunded drum club. Devoted students will meet before and after school and at lunch to share their enthusiasm for drumming. These pads and sticks will facilitate rudimentary instruction of drumming. They will enable us to form a club that will grow each month and each year. They will enable students who cannot afford these musical basics to join the experience. Music clubs nurture the culture and environment of a school. Like sports teams, they often provide the motivation for students to engage positively with other students and teachers, and to raise their academic performance as they feel the power of education and inclusion.
