My Students

My students are creative, motivated, and inspired musicians. They love performing, and learning new musical concepts, and they are very excited about getting the chance to get hands on experience with instruments in the music room.

Being from the vibrant neighborhood village, many of these students have grown up seeing live music in the park, and have an enthusiasm for music that I find so inspiring.

We are excited to be able to purchase reeds, tuners, strings, and other resources to make our music learning even more enriching!

My Project

With your generous donations, the students will continue to nurture their love of music! Our concert band has been running low on reeds, and we have a very eager bass player who is thrilled to have an instrument he’ll be able to plug in and play for our upcoming concerts.

Living in a small village, it can be tricky for my students to access the instruments and accessories they need, so your donation means so much!

We have been studying percussion instruments and I could not be more excited for these kids to get hands on experience with their own pan drum.
