I teach Band in grades 4-12 in Calistoga, CA. My students just love playing their instruments and have a great time in class. However, we need some new, upbeat music that is fun to play. Some great music to play in elementary school will keep up their interest and excitement which will turn into a great Junior High and High School band in the future. I am asking for four band arrangements that my students will just love, including "Featuring The Band', "Safari Drums Rock", Philharmonic Phun Phest", and "Saxcapade". Your donation will not only help today's elementary band have some fun, but will help the future junior high and high school bands in Calistoga grow. Thank you for your consideration.
