My students need alto saxophone reeds in order to produce a quality sound. The trumpet and trombone mouthpieces will upgrade existing worn equipment.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Typically, I believe in engaging my students in a "hands on" lesson. I truly want my students to excel at all levels of music education. I will introduce the class to all phases of music over a period of time. Generally, I believe hard work and dedication will lead to success.
My students are from low-income, free breakfast/lunch and single parent homes.
The students are hard working and dedicated to the band program. Our school district is still under conservatorship of the state department of education. Most of our buildings on our campus are in need of immediate repair. Our students are in dire need of much needed materials and supplies. Despite the conditions, we are still trying to carry on in a positive manner with the music program.
My students will need alto saxophone reeds, trumpet/trombone mouthpieces and a replacement bass drum head in order to practice and perform with the band. My students will learn the basic fundamentals and techniques of instrumental music. We will be able to improve our overall function in the band program. With the material, I will encourage my students to achieve more on a daily basis.
I truly believe all donations will greatly improve the morale of our school and increase the level of confidence among my students.
It will be beneficial to the development of each students' skill level. My students interest level will be elevated for having better equipment in the classroom.
