Learning To Play The Piano Is Fun! Part I

My students need 4 portable keyboards.

  • $583 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

The Music department at my school is just starting its second year. The excitement about the Music program is at a fever pitch. The majority of our students have never had a chance to play an instrument. All of our students have an opportunity to take a general Music class in which some of them wish to fulfill the life-long dream to play the piano. I am excited about helping students meet their musical goals. The only problem is that we do not have enough keyboards for the number who are interested and motivated to learn. Often times, we have three to four students on one keyboard which limits how much we can accomplish. Our students are ecstatic about the possibility of being great musicians but to make this happen we are in desperate need of resources. We know that students will reap great benefits from learning to play the piano and will gain a skill that they can carry with them throughout their lifetime. We are asking for 4 keyboards so that our students can begin to fulfill their musical dreams and wishes. Thank you for thinking of us and supporting Music in the schools.
