Rack 'Em Up!

My students need this drum rack in order to more efficiently move the drum set for marching shows on and off the field. The jazz ensemble will be able to make great, also!

My Students

The students in our high school bands are representative of townships and communities throughout Currituck County, NC. Instrumental students living anywhere in the county are able to attend this arts intensive program. Students who participate within the high school bands audition for placement within the program itself to best place their abilities and allow the highest level of growth.

Our students are serious about the art of music and community performances and both our students and community will directly benefit from your support.

Many of our students pursue music professionally and in college upon completion of this program. Even those who do not, still gain valuable life experiences that help them grow into exemplary citizens and advocates for the arts.

My Project

My students use the drum kit on a daily basis for daily rehearsals and weekly for performances. This drum kit rack will allow percussion students to more efficiently and with greater ease, move the drum kit to and from performance events. Our performances happen in a great variety of environments including football fields, marina docks, concert tents, and so on. The ability to simply fold and store one rack vs folding and unscrewing seven to ten separate racks saves man power and time!

The drum sets will play many roles in the program for the students.

This rack will enhance the environment not only in the classroom but on the concert stage and marching field as well.
