My Students

My school is a small public charter school that borders four larger public school districts. Our students are mainly inner city kids from low-income areas of the city. These students have been through a lot, i.e., high crime, the city water crisis, and poverty.

My school is a Title I school where 100% of the students are on free breakfast and lunch.

Students also receive a backpack of food to take home on the weekends to make sure they have food at home to eat.

My Project

I am requesting a pair of concert cymbals and stands to be used in our percussion ensemble. Imagine walking into my music room during percussion ensemble rehearsal and getting the feeling that something is missing. You hear cajons, congas, bongos, shakers and other instruments, and yet, there is still something missing…the roll of cymbals.

Cymbals will give our percussion group that extra something to make our music become more alive to our audience.

My students love playing in our percussion ensemble and the time has come to fulfill the need to include cymbals in the group to, again, give that extra special something to our music.
