Chimes for Aspiring Middle School Musicians

Help me give my students this beautiful chimes for all of our aspiring musicians!

My Students

Our middle school music students thrive and grow everyday through the art of creating music. Hundreds of students enter the classes of band, choir, and orchestra everyday to connect and learn from one another. If you take any of the music classes at Sutter you are immediately immersed into the word of creative expression and technical music skills.

My students are anxious to learn more and devour any musical task that I hand them

The students at our school deserve the best quality equipment available to become thought provoking musicians. Learning on old and weathered instruments from decades past can be close to impossible and my students deserve better that broken instruments!

My Project

The musicians at our middle school are trying to acquire all the instruments they need to sustain and replenish their music program. A couple years ago we raised enough funds to buy a xylophone and this year we are going to raise funds for purchase concert chimes. This large instrument has long pitched metal tubes that are struck by a mallet to ring out bell tone. Concert chimes will allow students to play more challenging music as well as more diverse repertoire.

Donations to this project will help fulfill the goal of obtaining the standard percussion instruments that required for an award winning school music program.

Please consider being a donor in helping the students access the instruments needed to grow as musicians!
