Our class motto is: Relentlessly Pursuing Excellence! Though we are a music class, we use music as a means to develop life skills like thinking and responsibility. We work as a team to create and enjoy high quality music.
Our school serves a high-poverty, at-risk student population in an urban setting.
With roughly 80% of our students on the free and reduced-price lunch program, many students struggle to pay for instrument rental or supplies. That said, the students in the music program go beyond the excuses to find ways to reach their potential. They overcome diversity and adversity while supporting each other in achieving success.
Lincoln High School's Drumline performs all over the northwest, entertaining and bringing the HYPE to schools, events and competitions year round. Over the past 10 years, this group has pioneered the Entertainment Drumline style in the northwest, pushing conventions and ensuring that audiences are drawn into the show with engaging grooves that get you moving.
While our drumheads have lasted for years, but it is time for us to replace them.
These drum heads will help us get a quality and uniform sound and ensure that our equipment isn't breaking down on us while we're on the road. It may not be the most glamorous project, but functional and dependable equipment is what enables my students to learn and perform to a high degree.
