My students need new and exciting pieces to play for our concerts.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our school does not have any money in the budget for supplies or music. Therefore, our band program has to recycle pieces from years before. We need a music makeover so the students can experience new sounds in their performances.
The students at our school are some of the most disciplined and hard working students that I have ever taught.
They come from a very diverse inner city urban area. They love music and they are very interested in learning and experiencing new things. Our band program continues to grow and thrive, but we need some new music to keep us on a path of energetic and fun musical learning.
The addition of these five new band concert titles, each of which includes four pieces. This will provide us with 20 new tunes for our band to play and perform. These additions to our library will jump start our school year and give our concerts a new punch. The music we play needs to be current and relevant to keep the interest of our students. They have many choices and distractions in their lives. Great new music will definitely help keep their interest at a much higher level.
In our fast paced world full of technology, we need to have exciting and current music to engage our students.
Music is a wonderful art form that continues to grow and evolve, so we must use it to keep pace with the world in which our students live.
