Our band students are extremely diverse. Many speak Russian, Spanish, Chinese, Urdu, or Uzbek and home. However, despite their differences, they all come together to make music. The great thing about our band program is that you don't need to be an academic all-star to be successful. We all communicate through the language of music, so everyone has the same fair shot to be outstanding.
Our students are outstanding and take music very seriously.
We have won many awards for outstanding performances and have packed concerts at school. Our students' parents value their music education.
We need silk swabs for all student clarinets and saxophones. Playing an instrument creates moisture inside, which turns pretty yucky pretty fast if it is not properly swabbed out every time. If they are not, pads can wear out much faster and germs will grow.
Students want clean instruments to play confidently, and need quality swabs.
Lower quality swabs can get stuck in the instrument, which is a huge headache. We are lucky to have instruments we can provide to students. It is our goal to keep them clean and working well for a long time. Your donation goes a long way to keeping our instruments happy and healthy!
