My Students

I teach music performance at an inner city school in Bronx, NY. My students come from diverse spectrum of economic and ethnic backgrounds. Some are honors students, and others have special needs. Many grew up speaking different languages at home, but in my classroom we all speak the language of music.

My students have incredible raw talent, and I want to provide them with the best music education possible, to help unlock their full potential.

Because of their diverse needs, the best way to help my students improve their skills by providing them with a wide variety of acoustic and electronic instruments, so that each student can find the one that suits them best.

My Project

My students participate in four different live music performances every school year. Two of those performances are acoustic shows, and the other two are electric full band concerts. The acoustic shows only require one bass amplifier, but the electric full band concerts requires at least two. Unfortunately, our second bass amplifier recently stopped working.

By donating to our project, you will enable more than one student to play bass at a time during our electric full band performances.

Additionally, we need to replace the strings on one of our electric basses. One of the old bass strings broke, and the remaining 3 strings are in very bad shape. With a new bass amplifier and new strings for our electric bass, my students will be able to put on the best concert possible.
