My Students

My music students are very interested in and enthusiastic about learning how to play band instruments. They are hardworking students that love music and love to perform.

Our community really supports the arts, but is not always able to fund our program.

This makes it harder for us to provide the proper instruments for them to learn on. So many students would like to participate and benefit from our program.

Your donation could make such a huge difference for many kids in our community now and in the future! We would really appreciate your support!

My Project

Currently, my band students use bass clarinets that are 30 years old and require constant repair. One particular bass clarinet has been cracked in half twice and has been re-glued twice, but now is unplayable.

By providing these quality instruments, my students will have a chance to grow musically in ways they never could before.

With new instruments in their hands, this will provide the students with great encouragement, enthusiasm and will help them to ultimately sound better. This will improve the overall sound quality of my band and will enhance the musical experience for everyone.

Your donation will improve the music education for my students now and in years to come.
