Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our school is filled with students from rural, agricultural Iowa and is made up of a handful of small communities who have banded together to create one district. A significant portion of the students come from highly mobile families that often do not have the means to provide proper supplies for their students. Nevertheless, our students remain ever curious of new musical styles, new cultures, and the vast network of connects that music allows between people.
A community of music lovers that want to improve and share their voice with the world; that's the Saints.
They strive to keep marching along to their musical glory.
Each year a new group of 7th graders start out a Mormon Trail Jr High School. They've music classes before up to this point, but most have not yet had the chance to really put their acquired skill to the test and raise it to a new level. By offering our piano class to the new students, it gives them a chance to cut their musical teeth, have a common goal, and bond through a mutual experience that sticks with them the remainder of their lives. Giving these students a high quality experience with the best equipment sets the stage for their 7th-12th years.
