Long Time Coming: Time to Restring and Clean Our Guitars!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Sing, Say, Dance, and Play! Every day an exciting adventure awaits my students when they enter my music classroom, a.k.a. Ms. K.'s House of Music. We sing, say, dance, and play to experience music at its fullest!
I teach music to sixth-eighth grade students in a STEAM public school in Missouri.
My students range from middle class to poverty level, and some also experience violence in their neighborhoods on a daily basis. Sometimes music is the only solace to their day.
Despite their economic differences, all of my students are eager to express themselves through music. Every day they enter the music room with excitement and an eagerness to learn.
We have been blessed with having thirty guitars for our music room. My music students love to play their guitars! Many are becoming quite good on them, too. I have not had any funds to clean or restring the guitars in several years. Our guitars are long overdue for a makeover!
Having new strings, winders, and cleaners for our guitars will restore them to their natural beauty and keep them playable for years to come.
Without this basic maintenance, the wood on the guitar can crack, making the guitar unplayable.
My students will learn responsibility as they begin to invest in caring for their guitars using the requested items. Thank you for allowing my current and future music students a chance to play their guitars for many years to come.
