Help! Musicians Losing Valuable Music!

My Students

How can you possibly stay organized when your music folders have holes? My students are in desperate need of new folders! Their music is constantly getting lost because it is literally falling out of their folders into the chaotic hallways as they walk during passing. I find it everywhere!

My band members are committed middle school students who dedicate many hours a week to our success.

These students have won national, regional, and statewide competitions over the years. We perform high school level music and rehearse before school, six periods a week during school, and many times after school, too. Our school year includes three school concerts, two competitions, three parades, and several community events. Due to the many performances we have, we are constantly learning new music! Because we have folders that are falling apart, literally, I have had to purchase many replacement pieces of sheet music, and it has gotten very expensive to do so.

My Project

By purchasing these Deluxe Grand Concert Folders, the students will receive new leather-bound folders that safely secure sheet music, method books, and a pencil. These items will be durable and sturdy to last many years to come. I prefer this particular item because not only will it last, it presents beautifully on stage when the students are performing. It looks professional to see all students seated so elegantly in proper position performing such high level music with matching attire and folders. It takes our performance to another level.

This donation will help keep my students organized and will prevent them from losing valuable pieces of music and materials for their performances throughout this school year and many more to come.
