Mr. Cain from Anaheim CA is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

CIPA Drum Line Harnesses

Help me give my students the tools and support they need to carry their drums! These harnesses are designed to hold their drums while they are marching. Some drums are extremely heavy and a good harness is crucial!

My Students

I love that my students are hard working, dedicated, and passionate about what they do. They endure countless hours of rehearsal each week to prepare for an upcoming competition or concert.

My students understand that their achievements are not given, but earned.

We all have tons of fun bringing our musical talents together to create something unique, creative, and memorable!

My Project

Some drums can weigh up to 40 POUNDS! Now, imagine carrying that weight with the support of your back for 10-12 hours a week. Our current harnesses are very old. They not only consistently break, but they are no longer providing the students with support.

These new harnesses will provide the correct amount of support and comfort needed to keep students safe during our activities!

Our events include football games, marching band competitions, parades, pep rallies, and countless hours of rehearsals every week.

My students show strength and resilience on a daily basis to achieve what they have earned. My goal is to help them by providing the proper tools for success!
