I teach instrumental music at the High School of Environmental Studies in Manhattan. Several students approach me each day and ask me to teach them to play the drums. We currently have what was originally a five-piece drum set five or six years ago. Now, we\'re only down to about three pieces and the tuning screws are stripped. It is held together with duck tape and love. Even though it is in rather poor condition, there is a waiting list to play it. In our class, students create beats with the use of contemporary rhythms and we fuse their beats with the music we play. Students contributing rhythmic influences from their music make the classroom a more collaborative and lively place because students feel more connected to the music being made. The use of the drums really enhances and adds to the performance of any selection of music we choose. I would love to offer the opportunity to play the drums to more students. I am asking for a Pearl Forum Standard Jet Black 5-Piece drum set. We can give more students the opportunity to play the drums and improve the quality of the music we create.
