My Students

I teach band, grades 5 - 12, and my kids are amazing! We are in a very low income and transient area. That being said, you would not know it if you met them. These kids are always happy to come to band. I remember some even asking to have practice over our holiday break! They want to learn and always strive to meet the high expectations that I have set for them.

More important than learning an instrument, band gives our kids a family and a place to belong.

For many, it is the only reason they come to school.

My Project

Our school does not own very many instruments and the ones we do own are mostly broken or poor quality. We will be starting a new 5th grade band next year and we do not have enough instruments for the kids.

About 98% of my kids can't afford to buy or rent an instrument, so they use a school owned instrument.

A quality instrument like this Gemeinhardt Flute will last years and impact many kids and their band family experience.

In band our kids learn how to play an instrument, but more importantly, they get a family to belong to. Your donation can help make that happen!
