In Need of Reeds!

My students need to resupply their reeds. This should last us the rest of the year.

My Students

A clarinet without a reed is silent! I have a problem with the silence of the un-reeded instruments. I can not teach a student who can not play and this will turn the frowns from having to use a chipped, squeaky old reed past its expected life, into smiles of a better sounding woodwind section.

My school is located in the Low Country of South Carolina.

We are a Title 1 school in a 90%+ poverty neighborhood. My students are in the 6th through 12th grades and we have a very active band program. We march in about 10 parades and participate in many community events. Despite the many challenges the school meets Annual Yearly Progress and has a 94% Graduation rate when other schools with the same demographics are doing FAR less.

My Project

With the new reeds, the students will have more enjoyable and productive rehearsals. They won't have to worry about the old smelly reeds that do not play reliably. The amount requested should be enough for the rest of the year. These are needed to keep the music happening.

A reed enables a student to play.

A student who participates in band is off the street and doing a very productive activity. This activity teaches self discipline and the values of hard work and the great success that can come from it. Students will go to college and earn scholarships in music and this project for reeds will greatly assist in keeping the band program and students moving in the right direction.
