It's All About That Bass (Drum)
Help me give my students a high quality concert bass drum to further their sound potential and improve their educational experience in music!
"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything." Our students are creative, dedicated, and passionate young people with dreams of achieving incredible things through music.
In a community where music programs struggle to stay afloat, our kids are a shining example of solidarity through diversity and acceptance.
These inspiring children have overcome lack of funding, support and resources. By standing together as what they refer to as a "music family," they have brought awards and statewide recognition to a program that was near the brink of extinction. Help us usher in a new era for our kids and provide them the opportunity to achieve something that could change their lives.
The concert bass drum is often considered the "heartbeat" of the wind band. Not only is this instrument often the one responsible for a pulse, but much of the tone or effect of any given piece resonates from the bass drum. Simply put, having a high-quality bass drum is an essential component of having a high-quality symphonic band sound.
Our young musicians work hard day and night to produce quality sounds, and I'd like to provide them with instruments that allow them to experience their potential.
With our older model bass drum beginning to fall apart, we seek a replacement and improvement to push our sound forward and reach new heights.
Every student has a unique voice and sound. This sound is the essence of their identity and the footprint of their soul. Please consider helping me inspire our young people through music to find their sound. Thank you!
