My Students

At our high school, we are fortunate to have an incredibly diverse student body. Our band students are incredibly driven young people who are working to become leaders and valuable members of our community through music.

We are working together to create a culture that values music education, and all that music can teach us.

We take our natural skills and talents and put them to work in our band program. We learn from each other and we teach others to love music.

My Project

We are asking for two pairs of crash cymbals, a suspended cymbal stand, and cymbal felts. We have been in the process of overhauling our percussion section and the cymbals seem to be the last thing on our list.

Cymbals add drama, passion, and color to band performances.

Our current cymbals are over forty years old and have started to deteriorate in sound quality, appearance, and even safety for our students. These cymbals will be used in concert band, marching band, and jazz band at our school - they're so versatile! We can't wait to see what a big impact these cymbals have on our ensemble sound!
