Help me give my students a reason to come to school by providing an outlet through music.
Having been a teacher in a high poverty school district for a number of years I’ve been able to witness first-hand the healing power that music can bring to a hurting child. Many of these students come from broken homes with 1 working parent and don't have the financial means to rent or purchase a musical instrument. These students endure many hardships outside the classroom as it is and I’d hate for finances be a deterrent from a child in exploring the performing arts. These students are craving for the arts and need something to latch on to and make their own. Please help me provide the gift of music to my students. Let this be their beacon of hope that guides them to the light of success in their future.
Much like sports, a music program's success is directly correlated to having the proper equipment and resources in place. I am looking to implement a traditional band, jazz, modern band and a salsa/Latin jazz ensemble.
Please help me jumpstart a High School band program back on its feet.
I have recently been hired to revitalize a music program that has been nonexistent in previous years and I’m dire need of musical instruments and resources to give my students the proper musical education. A lot of students have been asking to bring back the music program and are excited for band to be offered at school, but unfortunately I don't have the number of instruments needed to provide my students with. Please help me give the gift of music to our very hard working underprivileged students.
In addition, by starting a band program at our high school we can create an atmosphere of school spirit and cheer at our pep rallies and sporting events. We can help give a face to our school by representing them in community events and parades.
