My Students

My students are a very talented and diverse group who are energized to learn and continue learning how to play their instruments. Our school places the performing arts high on its priority list because of the positive impact that they can have on students' academic and social lives. These students want to grow as musicians and attain a high level of performance. Help my students reach their full potential in band and orchestra by having instruments that work. Anybody who has ever had a car or other equipment that didn't work well knows how frustrating it can be. Help us make music!

My Project

Anybody who has ever played any kind of instrument knows it can be frustrating to have an instrument that doesn't fit you or hinders your ability to play. Several of my students play on violins that won't stay in tune or produce a quality tone. Once we have this equipment, my students will be able to develop their skills and perform at a higher level than they would have previously been able to do. This violin will allow us to play more as an ensemble with a higher quality and more characteristic sound. These donations will help students across multiple grade levels reach their full potential in orchestra. They are enthusiastic about learning to play a string instrument and this will only fuel that enthusiasm as we take our orchestra to the next level!
