Mr. Weeks from Williamston MI is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Can You Hear The Rain, Snow, Wind, and Waves?

My Students

My band classrooms are a place of budding musicians, laughter, and great camaraderie! This year, my students are looking forward to multiple performances with great musical experiences.

My students are 6th-8th grade musicians in a rural Michigan middle school.

They are excited to be in band where they can learn about the beauty of music. My students enjoy the challenge of working together as a musical team to make something great! My students understand that music can bring people together.

My Project

Each of the instruments has a specific purpose for enhancing the sound that the band can make. These instruments are necessary for creating soundscapes that are seasonal or natural. We do not have these instruments at our school and we have to borrow from other schools if we want to play music that requires them.

This rainstick, sleighbell set, wind chime mount, and ocean drum will bring the sounds of nature and seasons to our bandroom.

We have wind chimes, but without a mount for them, it is very difficult to play them.

These instruments and accessories are special to the percussion section because it allows them to tap into their creative side and try to make the music as alive as possible. Thank you for your support of the music!
