Ms. Johnson from Saltville VA is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Aspiring Musicians Need Proper Music Chairs!

My students need music chairs for band class! They are currently sitting in regular desk chairs. These chairs will help to improve their posture while playing and contribute to their success as a musician!

My Students

Our band students are some of the most hard-working kids you'd ever want as a teacher. They really put everything they have into making our band be the best it can be. Our kids make the most out of the little we have.

Our students dream of being a successful band in our low-income area.

Being small doesn't stop them from trying their very best to improve and become better musicians. These students really have the potential to be truly great.

My Project

I'm requesting help in providing my band students with proper music chairs. They've been through many different types of chairs that have been wobbly, about to break, or regular chairs intended for desk use. Band students should have the opportunity to sit in chairs intended for musicians.

Music chairs are durable, the proper sitting height for performing, and are specially made to improve the student's playing posture.

Having music chairs for the band students would propel us to the next level and provide the comfort and support students deserve while performing. Music chairs are built to last much longer than regular desk chairs, so we can make use out of them for many years to come!
