Mrs. Cartwright from Ashland VA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Guitar Supplies to Help Us Grow!

My students need supplies to continue learning guitar skills. Students need picks, stands, strings and a tuner.

My Students

We are very excited, because our school recently got a class set of guitars that are helping us to learn musical skills and concepts! We can't wait to put our musicianship to use!

Our students receive 45 minutes of music instruction each week.

The students are thrilled to be using some of that time to learn to play the guitar. Many of our students would not have the opportunity to learn an instrument outside of school. They are hardworking and enthusiastic about this new endeavor!

My Project

With additional guitar supplies, students will be able to take advantage of the wonderful instruments we have. Replacement strings are a necessary part of playing a guitar, and stands and picks will make our guitar storage and instruction much stronger. The purchase of a guitar tuner will allow for students to learn about pitch and tuning.

Playing guitar is a lifelong skill that many students don't have the opportunity to take advantage of.

Our students will be able to sing and make music in a way that helps them relate music instruction to the world.
