Help Our School Buy An Instrument - Clarinet
My students need a clarinet, a ligature and lesson book in order to support an expanding band program.
When my students pick up an instrument for the first time, they have no idea where it will take them or the joy playing will bring them. They're just excited to try something new.
We are an urban school in Minnesota with bright, creative students.
We have a rapidly expanding band program. If the rate of growth keeps up, I will not be able to get instruments to all the students who want to join band next year. I have been acquiring instruments in every way I can, but even with the used instruments I've been able to acquire, I haven't been able to keep up with the need for instruments among students who couldn't otherwise afford to rent or buy one from a music store.
This instrument will not only give many students an enriching opportunity to learn to play the clarinet, it will give them a chance to identify as musicians. Playing this clarinet could give a student who might struggle in other academic areas a chance to shine.
Making music is special.
Studies have shown a link between reading and math scores and making music. This project will bring a quality clarinet into my classroom and into the hands of a student who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford this experience. Please help me create an amazing experience for my students
