My students need guitar accessories including wall mounts, guitar bags, engraver, strings, and polishing items to keep our guitars safe and healthy!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are thrilled to get a chance to learn how to play the guitar. By the end of this year, I am hoping they'll be ready to perform in public. We have the guitars thanks to Donorschoose, but now we need the extra things that work behind the scenes to keep our guitars safe and in good health!
Most of my students come from poverty homes in Ferguson, MO.
Despite what the media has recently portrayed their town to be, our families are non-violent, hard working, loving people who want the best for their children. My students absolutely love music and look forward to coming to music class to sing, say, dance, and play!
If we had guitar mounts, we could move the guitars from the unsafe floor - where they are always in the way of students walking - to the wall, where the guitars would be stored safely in their new guitar bags. An engraver would help us keep the guitars safe. Extra guitar strings would come in handy for those occasional breaks, and having guitar polish would keep our guitars in pristine condition, helping them last a lot longer in the hands of several eleven-year-old children!
All of the extra accessories are really a necessity when teaching guitar to over 20 children at one time.
Having the mounts, engraver, bags, strings, and polish materials will help keep our guitars in good condition for many years. This means a lot more little hands will get to play those guitars for years to come!
