Help Us Get the Basic Instruments! Support Music Education!

My students need a snare drum.

My Students

"The things I learned from my experience in music in school are discipline, perseverance, dependability, composure, courage and pride in results. . . Not a bad preparation for the workforce!” - Gregory Anrig – President, Educational Testing Service Help support kids with the basic necessities!

A child's zip code should not determine the quality of their education.

Students deserve an excellent education. The music program is only two years old and the community and students love it! They are struggling with funds for the program and need your help to keep it rolling! The students live in a very rural area in Arkansas. There are few jobs and no afterschool activities because of the high level of poverty. The music classroom gives students a chance for creativity, expression, and cultural awareness. Many students have never been out of the town they live in and thus, lack the exposure that many other students get. Music provides these students the window to the world they do not know exists. No child should be prevented to join band or choir because of financial reasons. In the past two years, the music program has given students something fun to do in and outside of school. I'm hoping that it will continue and keep kids out of trouble. Donate for the kids!

My Project

My music program contains a couple of music stands, 10 method books, a sousaphone, and a concert bass drum. The community would like to expand the program and add a marching band, jazz band, musicals, etc... This snare drum will make our total of instruments three! A snare drum is a basic percussion instrument and this instrument will be used in both the middle school and the high school.

A snare drum is a necessity when it comes to basic concert band percussion.

My students deserve a good music education and I can promise you that my students will appreciate it! My students will be able to use this instrument to practice basic fundamentals, advance to new levels, and perform with this drum in contest, ensemble performances, and individual recitals for the community. Please donate!
