"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything" - Plato
Music makes our lives brighter.
Twice a week hundreds of title one school elementary students get to explore, create, and participate in an instrumental music group free of charge. This is an opportunity they would never get if the instruments and materials were not provided for them. Music class allows a place for the students to belong, to dream, to have an opportunity at a bright future filled with arts and friends. After sharing rooms, being baby sitters, or worrying about what they will eat next, music provides a happy consistency to push out the worlds troubles and focus themselves.
Please consider donating to help provide materials to keep these students creating music, memories, and friends. Their lives stay brighter because of the music and the people that show them love.
The schools instrument inventory provides almost every instrument for our students in this Title I school. More than 75% of the students are on free or reduced lunch so paying for instruments materials is not a necessity. With the instruments the schools funds pay for their strings, music, repair, and the materials the band students need. We are at a point that many of the bows the school owns needs to be replaced. The students love coming to class, learning an instrument, and having fun exploring music with their friends. Without replacing the bows the students will be losing full ability of playing their instruments and the schools funds can only provide about two a year to replace. Please help keep music in their lives and donate so we can get new bows for our instruments. They will be used by many students for years and years to come.
