The students in the band program at my school are highly dedicated students who have a desire to learn more about music. A majority of them come from low-economic households, and do not have the resources available to other students that live in the area. However, their economic status does not hold them back!
Despite their situations at home, these students show up on time, are dedicated to the band program as a whole, and give their best every single day!
These practice pads and sticks will act as a classroom set of practice materials for percussion class. Since not every student is able to purchase the proper practice materials, these pads and sticks will create a level playing field (literally) for every student! Students ranging from 6th-12th grade will benefit from this project.
Music educators always stress the importance of practice to their students, and I want to continue that culture in my classroom.
Musicians are always striving to become the best player possible on their instrument, and as a music educator I want to provide that opportunity to my students.
