Mr. Wamsley from Hogansville GA is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help The Cavalier Sound!

My students need quality sticks and mallets for the 2018 Marching Band Season. The sticks and mallets will be in the hands of students with great attitudes and a thirst for learning the art of percussion!

My Students

The music students are passionate with a drive to improve! Our music program is growing, and with growth comes more needs. Our program is mostly self funded by student fees and fundraising.

We are what we repeatedly do, excellence, then is not an act but a habit.

This Aristotle quote is what we base our rehearsals and mindset around. My students love music and love the opportunity to perform! This group is always ready to take it to the next level!

My Project

These sticks and mallets will be used for the Marching Cavaliers' 2018 Marching Band Season! The students play at all home and away football games, parades, and compete in 2 marching band competitions a year. These students will use this equipment during summer band camp. Specifically, the percussion students will be giving up 3 weeks of their summer working hard 8 am to 6 pm. This equipment will be important in the instruction over the summer. These students are eager to improve their sound and just need the best equipment to achieve their goals! Please consider supporting their music education.
