A Beautiful School Needs Wonderful Music

My students need 5 clarinets to start a band program at our school.

My Students

How would you feel if you saw a stage and no one using it? My students are anxious to play on the stage. All we need are enough instruments to start a band.

I have started a pre-band program with the fourth graders.

They are playing recorders to learn the fundamentals of music theory. They have done such a great job that I think they are ready to move up to band instruments. They are a group of bright and dedicated children that would really benefit from being in a band.

My Project

My students need 5 clarinets to start a band program at our school. Having these instruments would mean a lot to these children. They would be able to have experiences in working in groups, practicing, and performing in school activities and community events, and even going to festivals to meet band students from other schools.

The big picture is to establish a band program with at least thirty elementary band students.

Having the band perform in school events would help bring school spirit and could work as an incentive for the students to do better in school. Getting the five clarinets is a great way to start up a band program, although many other instruments are also needed.
