My Students

Orchestra students at our middle school are extremely hard workers. Through generous grants and donations, they have been able to begin taking private lessons and achieve a high level of playing that furthers their ability and drive to continue perfecting their instrument.

We are a Title I school with 88% of students on free and reduced-priced lunch.

Orchestra students have been given the privilege to take private lessons and have risen to the occasion. Students are practicing more, auditioning for outside orchestras and camps and playing more difficult music.

My Project

This project is to help reduce the cost of miscellaneous materials students need to work productively in an orchestra.

We have over 120 students in the orchestra this year and 4 strings on each instrument, that's a lot of strings!

Sometimes they break, but most often the strings have been on the instrument for a period of time and they are no longer good. Having old strings presents problems with playing in tune and having a strong tone. With all instruments having fresh strings, all students can feel successful!

We are also in need of rosin to place on our bows to make a characteristic sound on the instrument and name tags so that every instrument can be identified if misplaced.
