The students in my band program have a real passion for exploring and engaging with instruments. My goal is to increase the amount and quality of the instruments in my class to meet the student's need.
The students come from an underserved community in Ferguson, MO, and require peer cooperation to grow.
This is a new school and is lacking many essential instruments needed to run a successful program. My hope is that I can return to the next year with the needed instruments so I can give these talented students the band experience they deserve. Thank you for your consideration and your support of music in the schools.
The percussion section of a Concert Band is the icing on the cake for the overall Band sound.
With your help, we can provide these talented kids the quality equipment they need to be successful.
The gong is an important part of the percussion section, and will be used in rehearsal and in student performances.
The STEAM Academy is only in its second year, and we are working towards building a powerful Band program; however, we are in desperate need of equipment for our students. My percussionist are working with the bare minimum, and I am wanting them to have the full Band experience. Thank you very much for your generosity!
