Can't Play Music Without Music Stands!

My students need 12 music stands to replace the numerous broken ones we currently have.

My Students

Have you ever tried to prop your music up to play it without a proper stand? It's nearly impossible!

We are a K-5 charter school in an urban environment.

Our band program is a cornerstone program within our school. It has grown exponentially over the past few years. Unfortunately, this growth being so far off the charts has resulted in a substantial budget shortfall. We just cannot support the growth on our own!

My Project

One area that was used in past years to cut corners was music stands. When some were purchased, we were told to find the cheapest possible. Unfortunately, only a year or so later, they are already in disrepair. I am asking for 2 cartons of stands, giving us 12 brand new high quality stands, to replace the worst of the worst.

Your generous support has continually excited my students.

They love seeing new equipment come in; they love knowing people throughout the country truly care about music and care about what they do. Our instrument inventory is continually growing, but now we need to support it with proper equipment.
