My Students

Our students LOVE their musical instruments. Hour after hour they work diligently to hone their skills. This year, their hard work paid off when they performed many fun and memorable song for our winter concert. It was a spectacular performance that was enjoyed by their peers, faculty, administration, their parents, and community. Every year it seems as though more and more students are clamoring for less and less musical instruments.

We must do everything possible to save these instruments from needless damage from lack of storage.

Our students need their outlet to express themselves musically.

My Project

For nearly two decades our cozy music room has been able to provide foundational lessons to thousands of students over the years.

Fortunately and unfortunately, our tiny music room has been filled beyond capacity with musical instruments!

This makes things very tight in the classroom for all grades and also leads to instruments falling over in piles around the room. This leads to damaged instruments and a shortened lifespan for all them. Please help our music teacher, and all of our NFCS students find a home for their instruments so we have them for years to come!
