My Students

This project is for my 5th and 6th grade band students. The students at this school are energetic and eager to learn. They attend a small school of about 200 students and they love music!

Music is an essential part of an education at our school.

I want to make sure that every student has access to a high quality music education. These kids are ambitious and ready to learn but sometimes they do not have the necessary materials. Please help us meet our goal!

My Project

Every year, students in 5th and 6th grade have the chance to be a part of an American tradition; joining the school band. This time comes with great joy for me because I love seeing kids pursuing a new level of musicianship. But this time also comes with the stress and worry about if students can afford to rent or purchase an instrument.

All students should have equal access to a high quality music education.

Unfortunately, I do not have instruments available for all of these students. So rather than asking my students to go without, I am asking for help to purchase one Bells & Percussion kit. This will support one student for the year 2018-2019 in their decision to further their musical education, but many students in the near future. Thank you for your consideration.
