My Students

We are a growing instrumental music program in a small, high-poverty district in San Jose, CA. Throughout the five schools in our district, we have over 250 fourth through eighth grade students in our program.

We are committed to providing every band student an instrument, and all accessories/ supplies, free of charge so that they can participate in our instrumental music program, regardless of their financial situation.

Some of our students stay with us for all 5 years, and some join us right before they leave for high school. We have a wide variety of skill levels, but we all work together to make one beautiful sound.

Music is a wonderful opportunity to learn so many things, from teamwork and self-accomplishment, to history, science and math. We want to make sure that all of our students have an opportunity to learn to play.

Please help us provide all of the materials our students need, free of charge to them, so that they can succeed in the wonderful world of instrumental music.

My Project

Our young musicians are making wonderful progress in learning to play their clarinets. Unfortunately, accidents happen and the instruments sometimes get dropped. Usually, they're ok, but every once in a while, a clarinet mouthpiece gets chipped and that accident is not repairable. The mouthpiece will need to be replaced in order for the clarinet to work.

Please help us keep a few extra clarinet mouthpieces in the cupboard ready-to-go for when these emergencies occur.

I would hate for a student to quit band because they accidentally dropped their mouthpiece and their parents can't afford to replace it. Thank you so much for your support with this.
