My Students

Our young musicians are in grades 9 through 12 and eager to further their musical education. They have elected to pursue band as their gateway to music education.

Our school is transitioning into a performing arts magnet school, so music will be the school's focus, but additional funding is necessary for this magnet endeavor to be successful.

For many students, equipment is key to gaining these new musical experiences. Your donations will help this performing arts school happen and provide students with a bright future!

My Project

Running a music program sometimes relies on the small stuff.

These cords, cables and adapters are essential technology for a music classroom.

My students need audio cables, extension headphone cable and adapter and audio adaptors for various applications throughout the year. We are requesting many of the same item because these cords often get bent and break. We use them for our percussion ensembles, concert bands and jazz ensembles to run metronomes to our speaker system.

They are also heavily used during our marching band season, connecting sound equipment, such as microphones, to our outdoor speak system.

Really, they are used year round for a variety of applications and with over 300 students, the cords and cables need to be replaced frequently.
