Bring the Gift of Music to Our School

Help me give my students a Yamaha Clavinova to be used in our school auditorium. This instrument would be used not only for our musical productions, but for many events and activities held in our auditorium.

My Students

Our students love of theater and performance has been displayed for many years in our school district. Our students have produced stellar productions for the past fifteen+ years. Our program continues to grow and prosper each year with many talented students.

Our school resides in a low income area Pennsylvania, where many students would not have the opportunity to experience live theater.

Our school productions allow many of our talented young people a chance to perform. In addition, these productions give many in our community a chance to experience musical theater.

My Project

The purchase of a Yamaha Clavinova will bring the gift of music to our students. This instrument will be used not only to lead our students through their musical productions each year, but also for piano classes and lessons. For many years we have been forced to negotiate the use of a piano for our productions, as we do not have one available for our use and cannot afford to purchase one.

A Yamaha Clavinova would bring many additional opportunities for quality musical production to our students for the many events and activities held in our auditorium.

The availability of the Yamaha Clavinova will allow our drama students the opportunity to have quality educational experiences.
