Help us Jazz Up our Music Program

My students need some common supplies for the Jazz Band. We are in need of a bass amp, and mutes for our brass section. The tuners are to make sure we play in tune.

My Students

We are a Middle School Band serving students in 6-8 grades. Our students come from mixed economic backgrounds. We are currently trying to expand the band program. Last year, we started a Jazz Band and this year we look forward to expanding even more.

Our students love music, and are constantly looking to improve their musical skills and with your help, they can attain their goals.

Our budget is small compared to the needs of the department. Your support will be greatly appreciated by all the students impacted by this donation. Thank you.

My Project

We are a very young program and recently have started up a Jazz Band. We are in need of some jazz essentials including a bass Amp, brass mutes and some tuners to make sure we play in tune. The program had initial success last year and now we are trying to expand upon last years success.

Please support our goal to get Jazz back into the Music Curriculum.

Your gift will help these students experience one of the most exciting forms of music available.... Jazz! Thank you for considering the impact of Jazz Music on our students. One of the truly American art forms!
