Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Imagine walking into a music classroom full of excitement, sounds and wonder. We don't have many classroom instruments so we do our best to use our imagination. From cups to coffee cans our students make some great music. Imagine what we could do with these instruments?

My students come from all walks of life.

One thing about them remains the same, they are hard workers and deserve the best. Our school has a true sense of community and we really try to engage students to not only be awesome students, but stand up citizens.

My Project

Our students from Kindergarten to sixth grade will be using these instruments, Boomwhacker Sticks, and sheet music with CDs in the music classroom. The students will be using them for making music, learning how to read music and more. The instruments will be used in the music classroom, concerts and other music lessons.

When you put an instrument in a students hand, the smile on their face is priceless.

These instruments will be used for years to come, imagine all the lives that will be touched when we reach our goal.
