I am the band director at a public high school in Northern California. The choir director and I thoroughly enjoy working with our students. They are wonderful kids. They are kind yet talented, grounded yet ambitious, humble yet hardworking. Together we promote within our students the idea of excellence through perseverance.
Due to where we are located, many of our students come from households of modest means.
While they have the drive to learn, many do not have the resources. This does not stop us from doing everything we can to support our students. We fundamentally believe that all students have the right to experience a proper music education.
Our high school drumline is growing yet again! We are in need a of a new marching bass drum to fill out our ensemble. With your generosity, we can make this happen.
Help us add some power to our marching band!
A new bass drum would be heard at rallies, football games, parades, and patriotic events all around town.
Your contribution will help another student to be a part of an active and engaging program here at our high school, our music program. By providing yet another student with an instrument, you are giving them a chance to participate in an experience they will never forget.
