Help Us Start an Orchestra - Bass Bow

My students need a bass bow and rosin.

My Students

Help us fulfill our dream of creating an orchestra at our school!

Five years ago when I started teaching at this school, there were only four students in the music program.

Today, we can boast that we have a flourishing music program that supports over 80 students and is growing each and every day. We are extremely proud of the band program, piano ensemble, and the percussion ensemble that we have created.

My Project

Students often ask if we offer any string classes. We currently have a lonely bass waiting for a bow. Giving our bass a bow and some rosin will help us expand our music program to include a full orchestra. We have found that different types of ensembles attract very different students. Students involved in the music program feel that they have a place within the school that offers them respite from the demands of both their academic and daily lives while also providing a unique set of artistic and intellectual challenges. We know that we have orchestra students just lurking, looking for their special place to be.

We have witnessed first hand the transformative impact that the music program has had on our students these past five years.

Please donate so that we can reach our goal of creating a vibrant orchestra program!
