This project represents the UP-BEAT to a small recording studio for an alternative high school. The goal is to open our HI-HATS, CRASH through the emotional walls to find the inspirational SUSPENDED bridge that allows us to make a huge SPLASH into the world around us. Then RIDE it all the way to success. The universe has been speaking and it is saying, "boom boom ta tat ta tat tom tom ba boom ba boom snare snare snare floor tom snare snare boom boom boom boom tom tom tom t t t t tom snare roll roll roll crescendo crescendo crescendo AND ________!!!" For the past few years, I have been given incomplete drum-sets from owners who wish to hand them down for others to use. Unfortunately, they came without the cymbals, stands and other hardware. So our drumming usually ends with someone saying "Crash!" What we do have...three incomplete drum-sets pieced together made of bass, snare, high-medium-floor toms. The items we seek will help complete these much appreciated donations and bring life back into these instruments. I am a traveling teacher certified in K-12 music/SPED. I have many plans for these cymbals that could touch many students musical hands in many schools for as long as these cymbals last. WSWFZC (what sounds would Frank Zappa create) if he had cymbals rather than two bi-cycles on The Steve Allen Show March 4, 1963? "What does music say? -a composition activity using cymbals and found objects for striking rubbing rolling brushing." One on one music sessions would provide a student in the throes of hardship to take a mental, physical and soulful time out from his/her troubles and perhaps allows some sort of positive energy to break down their walls. And the end product...a recording of greatness!
