Hello I am Mr. Aldaba! I'm a passionate music teacher in the greater Phoenix area. My students are amazing young individuals who work hard every day to become great musicians. The lessons my students learn are used beyond the classroom. I do my best to teach them life lessons to help navigate through their adulthood. I'm asking for any contribution that will help my band students to ensure they have what they need for their success.
My band is a great group of talented individuals who began their musical journey in high school and consistently aim for excellence.
Working in a Title I school, it is difficult for many of my students to purchase their own personal equipment. Currently my band program is in need of brass and woodwind mouthpieces. We know the performing arts needs funding to support the growth and the establishment. The supplies needed will help ensure all my students have quality equipment for their success.
These brass and woodwind mouthpieces will ensure every current and future student has the appropriate equipment for their musical journey.
If my students receive this equipment, they will be ecstatic and grateful to be able to produce beautiful sounds on their instruments!
It would be unfortunate to turn away any student from learning the world of music because they could not afford the necessary equipment. The amount of learning these students receive will help them for the rest of their life. Music is an outlet for a lot of my students to express themselves and it would be a shame to not give them this opportunity.
