My Students

Our students are energetic and inspired by musical experiences that they can relate to and grow from. In the diverse community of students from Queens, New York, they bring many different thoughts, tastes, and experiences to the table. Our school encourages creativity, community and critical thinking in every area of their curriculum. Many students thrive when they feel successful. One way that their confidence is boosted is when they have the supplies needed for them to sound and look their best for performances.

My Project

We currently have a shared closet space for stand storage. Due to the nature of aging music stands and a tight storage space, many of our stands are not in the best condition and are not stored in the best way to preserve their life.

A stand rack would help us greatly!

We would like to avoid purchasing more stands and instead take preventative measures and store our stands more safely on a rack.

This investment would also encourage our students to support the organization of our equipment and treat it with even more care, which is a major part of our curriculum in the area of community and musicianship.
