My Students

My students are some of the best students you could ask for. They are all members of the middle school concert band and LOVE what they do. Most of them qualify for free and reduced price lunches.

They work really hard and produce superior results.

They have received superior ratings at county and state assessments. The students are high achievers and take honors and advanced placement classes.

Most of these students have been playing music since elementary school and really enjoy their musical experience.

My Project

Paper music folders are not the same. My middle school scholars use these folders on a daily basis and the constant wear and tear allows these folders to have rips and tears in them in only a few weeks.

These professional music folders will be used in class as well as during performances.

When an ensemble walks out on stage the first thing you see is the attire, instrument, and folder. Professional ensembles like the National Symphony Orchestra, Boston Pops, and our local feeder high school band program all use these same folders.

My students will feel a bigger sense of pride knowing how much more professional they look with their new music folders!
