Our student population represents a very diverse collection of demographics. Many of our students, and their families, are considered low-income status residents within our community. As you can probably imagine, our students encounter a great deal of adversity as a result to their home life experience.
For our students, the art of musical expression represents a place of safety, and a space that will allow them to grow and learn as students, artists, and human beings.
Students who are involved in the band program have consistently displayed an increase in school attendance and academic achievement. Our students also aim to add value to the overall school environment by maintaining the highest level of character and integrity as student leaders.
Our Symphonic Band Clarinet Players are in need of a more advanced mouthpiece for their instrument that will help to support their music making efforts for our upcoming concerts. Many of our concert selections require an advanced orchestral sound, and many of our students are not able to afford the best quality instruments and mouthpieces that are helpful in achieving this sound. Your donation will help give my students access to higher quality music equipment, which will be used daily during our music classes and many musical performances.
These instrument mouthpieces will help our students achieve a more clear and mature musical tone, and will also help them advance in their musical abilities.
One of our biggest challenges as a music program has been ensuring that our students have access to quality musical instruments. With your help, we can continue to build on our instrument and equipment availability for students, and provide them with the very best music education experience.
