Ms. Mello from Antelope CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

In Need of Instruments!

My students need a flugelhorn for the jazz band.

  • $2,555 goal

This project expired on April 29, 2013.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our jazz ensemble program is growing leaps and bounds! Now that we have grown to a successful level of playing, we are playing more advanced music. This music often requires band to have specialized instruments such as flugelhorns.

The students at our school are exceptional, both academically and musically.

Although our students encounter a lot of adversity on a weekly basis, they continue to make great strides with their academic and musical achievements. Students at our school achieve at some of the highest levels in our district despite this adversity.

My Project

A flugelhorn will enable students who otherwise could not afford an instrument to experience playing on such a unique and wonderful instrument. As our instrumental music program continues to grow, these instruments will enable all of our hard-working students to participate in band.

Having this flugelhorn will indeed show our students how valuable and vital their endeavors have been, and will be; that their efforts are worthwhile enough to invest in.

Giving musical instruments to programs that strive to provide a free education will benefit these students years to come.
