My Students

The music students at my school are talented, energetic and hard-working. Often, when a student chooses to take on the task of learning an instrument, it requires them to practice at both school and home. Our music department lacks in funding to keep in school equipment and instruments in working order without factoring in take-home instruments to those who can't have their own.

The students in our music program are amazingly committed to their study of music and we'd love to keep their dreams of pursuing their passion alive.

My Project

The opportunity to purchase new instruments and equipment will provide our children with the access they need to pursue their love of music.

Our current instruments and equipment have definitely seen better days.

With updated equipment and instruments, our children would be able to better showcase their talents and we could welcome more children into the arts.

Our students will take a piece of their musical talents into the world, be it by further pursuing a career in music, learning self-discipline, and of course having a positive hobby in their lives. They say "Music Makes The World Go 'Round!" Let's help them!
