Help Our Band Program Grow!

My students need bocals for their bassoons because we are borrowing them and they have to be returned at the end of the year.

My Students

Have you ever wanted to be really good at something but didn't have the correct equipment or supplies to make it happen? I have many students that would like to play the bassoon but without the bocal they can not be played.

My students are very excited about music and love being in band.

I have three students that play bassoon this year and I am hoping to start several more next year. These students all earned a superior rating at Solo & Ensemble this year. My 7th grade bassoonist made the all-county band!

My Project

My 7th grade bassoonist's bocal broke right before his all-county band concert this year. We are currently borrowing a bocal from another school so that he can keep playing as we did not have the funds to replace it. At the end of the year we have to return the bocal and he will not have one to play on. Your donation will allow this student to continue playing and it will allow our program to have two more bocals for new students to start bassoon.

The band works as a team, so all instruments are very important to our performance.

Your donation will allow us to continue to have a bassoon section in the band and it will allow students to have more choices as they are beginning their musical career in band.
