My Students

At our high school, we are fortunate to have an incredibly diverse student body. Our band students are incredibly driven young people who are working to become leaders and valuable members of our community through music.

We are working together to create a culture that values music education, and all that music can teach us.

We take our natural skills and talents and put them to work in our band program. We learn from each other and we teach others to love music.

My Project

As our marching band program continues to grow, we have an increased need for percussion instruments on the field. Smaller instruments are a hassle to organize and set up within the time constraints set up by competition rules.

This drum rack will revolutionize the way that our percussionists maintain, transport, and perform on their instruments.

We are asking for this rack because it will help to protect our percussion instruments from regular wear and tear as we use them for generations to come. This rack will make transportation easier, but will also keep expensive instruments safe throughout the school year and marching season.
