My Students

Our students come from hard working and loving families that may not have the means to provide quality instruments for our brand new band program. We have over 40 students from grades 7 through 12 who have signed up for our band program! That is a large percentage of the student population! It is so exciting to provide this opportunity to students and families.

You can make history by helping to provide the instruments we need during our very FIRST year!

We thank you for blessing our program with the love and support it needs through

My Project

Our high school has started a brand new band program! For many of our students the band program is their only musical learning experience. The band will give public concert performances and pep up the fans at many of our FSHS sporting events. We are excited to provide this opportunity for creative growth in our school and community.

Starting from scratch means that we have many needs in providing instruments to our students.

Our students come from hard working and loving families. Leading this group of fine young people is an honor. We thank you for blessing our program with the love and support it needs through
