Mr. Garrett from Tulsa OK is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Beginning Band Program Needs A Boost

My students need mouthpieces for cornets, trumpets, and trombones. We also need method books for oboe and baritone.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our students come from a low socioeconomic background.

Many of our students are surrounded by music at church, but resources for studying music at school are limited.

Our students demonstrate a strong interest in music through consistent practice in the music classroom. We recently inherited a small selection of used band instruments. Most of the instruments are missing parts.

My Project

The equipment needed for this project includes mouthpieces for cornets, trumpets and trombones. The mouthpieces are an essential part of each musical instrument. Students need the mouthpieces in order to produce a sound on the instruments. We also need method books for oboe and baritone.

The beginning band program is an ongoing project involving fifth and sixth grade students.

Our students practice vocal music at school on a regular basis. They are hoping to perform band music at school for students, parents and the community.
