Mr. Schnitzer from Dallas TX is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My students need these accessories for their instruments so they can continue to pursue their careers in music.

My Students

My students carry a full academic schedule and pair this with an atmosphere that encourages them to develop their musical talents. Any given day you will find my students engaged in impromptu concerts on campus, working on independent projects, or rehearsing in one of the many ensembles or groups.

To gain admission to the school, students were required to audition and demonstrate academic excellence.

All students must maintain an excellent academic standard and also compete in City, Region, State, and National level music competitions.

My Project

Many musical instruments have consumable parts that must be replaced on a regular basis. A typical clarinet reed will last for a few weeks and then will need to be replaced. The valve oil is used by brass players to keep the valves and slides on their instruments in good working order, just like a car needs an oil change. The polishing cloth will be used to maintain the luster on the exterior of the brass instruments.

The triangle clamp and sleigh bells are needed for my percussion students and the conducting book will be a great resource for my conducting students.
