Hooray! This project is fully funded
Band changes lives! Your donation will make it possible for students to play an instrument, and change their life by giving them a positive activity. Music can be an outlet for them and open doors they otherwise did not have available.
Our students attend a new public high school in an economically challenged area in Nevada.
This fall, over 100 students have signed up for band. Several of these students have never been in band before, nor do they have the resources to get an instrument of their own.
Your donation will change these students lives! Being in band will keep them away from some of the negative influences around them. Learning and continuing their music education will open doors for them that they previously could not open. These instruments will last for years, and impact many lives.
Music provides opportunities for students during secondary school and beyond.
With an instrument to play, these students will be able to get involved in something that will keep them away from the many negative influences in their lives and move them toward something that can provide discipline, teamwork, and a life-long desire to learn.
