Mallet Mania!

My students need new mallets and drum sticks for the fall semester to outfit our percussion drumline and pit for marching band.

  • $275 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Our award winning marching band needs your help in outfitting a rising high school drumline and pit section with new mallets that will help us sound great! We are a rural school with hard working students, great staff and a community that loves to hear and see their hometown marching band.

Our students have worked diligently in creating an all star marching band that operates in a competitive circuit in our area. We need new mallets for our keyboard and drumline instruments because our other mallets have been damaged due to age and normal wear.

With new mallets, our students will be able to perform with correct tone, blend, balance and technical proficiency.

With your help, our students will be given the opportunity to perform at the highest level our school can give them and will boost program development and student morale overall.
