Help me give my students 12 Latin percussion mounting claws, splash cymbals, and Meinl turbo crashers to be used in our drumline. Our drumline experienced huge growth this year and we need additional equipment!
My students are energetic, driven, and team oriented. My middle school marching band has about 100 students with about 20 students in the percussion section. We field a full marching drumline made up of primarily 7th and 8th graders. Each summer and fall, we learn a halftime production and parade music to play for our community every week throughout the season.
My students love performing and playing music together, with each student having a unique and important role.
Many of my students are also involved in athletics and clubs making them very well rounded students.
Most school drumlines have 10-12 students. Our middle school drumline for the 2019-2020 school year has 18 students in grades 7 and 8! I am always ready to instruct the students and get them ready for performing in the fall, but we are slightly short on percussion equipment.
I believe that every student in the band needs to have fun and contribute to the music with their instrument.
I would love to create a new section of percussionists for next fall with some new equipment and some unique sounds. This would allow each student to participate fully, even with our growth!
