At the High School of Environmental Studies in Manhattan, we have a very enthusiastic group of instrumental musicians. We celebrate the talents of students through many different styles of music such as jazz, Latin jazz, rock, R&B, hip-hop, and classical. Our class sizes are very large which adds to our ability to make great music but it also creates unique challenges. We have students who are interested in playing percussion instruments but we have only one drum set. Because of this, we are limited in the type of drumming we can teach. We want to offer more students the chance to play percussion and to incorporate different musical techniques and styles into the music classroom. We are requesting five hand drums (three djembes, two darbukas) to provide students with a different perspective on percussion playing. It will also give our students a way to express a wider range of musical ideas through their performance. Thank you.
