Mrs. Kesar from Fort Wayne IN is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students cleaning swabs to keep instruments clean and working.
My students are Middle School aged musicians. They are just beginning their band experience and are discovering the benefits of hard work and team cooperation through their involvement in band class. Learning to master playing an instrument is a huge undertaking, but these students show me their commitment and excitement for learning every day. All students are welcome in the band program and daily we strive to set aside our personal concerns, our divisions from social groups, and our outside stressors in order to focus on making music as one unified ensemble.
I teach my young musicians about basic instrument care and maintenance. However, few of my woodwind students actually own a cleaning swab. As you can see from this project’s value, providing each student cleaning supplies from the band budget is quite costly.
Running a cleaning swab through the instrument removes moisture from the inside and prevents the growth of gross things like black goop and mold.
Cleaning out instruments also prolongs the life of the key mechanisms and pads. Without the proper care, pads on woodwind instruments deteriorate and become damaged. Pad damage is the single biggest problem on my students instruments, putting many of them out of ideal playing condition.
