My Students

The group of students I work with are hard working and motivated to be the best they can be. They are fun to be around and are always doing everything they can to excel.

We are a Title I school, which means we are not very wealthy financially, but still manage to keep our heads up high.

Our bands motto is "Positive Attitudes and Good Will Towards All." I think the students genuinely believe and follow this motto. They help each other out and treat one another as family.

My Project

The Bass Drum Heads will replace the worn out heads they currently have, making them sound and perform they way they were intended. These instruments are the heart beat of the band and the students need to have a healthy strong heart so they can excel in our school and community.

By obtaining the Bass Drum Heads, the students will be able to be more competitive with the surrounding schools in our neighboring counties.

They will have a greater chance of having their music performances heard the way they were meant to be, and provide the community with great music.
