My students do the most amazing things with the least amazing instruments. The instruments are old, some are broken, some even barely work. Yet, my kids perform level 3-5 music and attend festivals and parades. Even beyond that, they aid the local elementary schools with private tutoring and middle school prep. This band program truly is a family and these students make it what it is. They are truly amazing and deserve the help that you would be able to provide.
I am now entering a new school and the main thing I have noticed is that the students, some of whom are taller than me, are playing the drums but having to bend over and make their learning more difficult because the stands for the drums are too short!
So, before school even begins, and as a gesture of good faith to my new student body, I want to make sure we have the appropriate equipment.
I am thinking we can use the current stands for some other equipment I am bringing in, so these stands will be a very important addition to my inventory.
