Matching Socks: The Quest for a More Uniform Concert Attire

My students need black dress socks so that they may appear more uniform in performances!

My Students

My students are 5th-8th graders who love experiencing music through instrument performance. They choose to not only learn their instruments in small groups during the school day but also to stay after school for an hour and a half every day so that they may rehearse as a full ensemble.

My students are passionate and dedicated about bettering themselves, both on individual instruments and as a whole ensemble.

My school district is in a low income, high needs area where all students can receive free breakfast and lunch.

My Project

My students are very energetic musicians who enjoy their performances. However, each time concert day approaches, we run into the same issues. Many of my young, high-needs student do not have access to black dress socks.

Our band is in desperate need of matching black dress socks!

The mix of white, black, blue and other colored socks looks distracting from the audience during performances. A supply of black dress socks would go a long way to helping our band members match their performance attire. This will in turn do a great job of bringing the focus of the concert on the music being performed rather than the appearance of the students.
