My Students

Would you like to sit on the sidelines and watch the others play?

My school is located in a high-poverty area and most of my students don't get much exposure to music at home.

They love to come to the music room and play the instruments, especially the drums. Unfortunately, there are not enough drums for all of the students to play and they have to wait for their turn.

My Project

I'm asking for your help to get 8 floor tom drums for my music classroom. This would allow one third of my students in each class to play, and when that's added to what we already have, all of the students will have a drum to use. I know that the students will love them.

With your donation, my students will have more time to play instead of waiting to play.

Your support of music education in public schools is very important and much appreciated by my students and myself.
