I teach at a public high school with a very diverse population. We have the following ensembles in our school and need help to keep them alive. Marching Band Concert Band Wind Ensemble Jazz Band Winter Drumline Chamber Ensembles

We are a music program with no funding sources available. The band uses fundraisers for all materials, instruments, travel, and uniforms. The band is very active in the community through performances.

The band program needs many items. By replacing our drum heads we can get out in our community more to perform. This will also help them prepare for their educational future. Many of my students go on to college and perform in the college's bands.

Your contribution to my students will ensure they can continue to be a voice in the community. They enjoy the art of performing and love music. The band just needs help to continue the traditions that are in place.
