My Students

Orchestra class is unlike any ordinary class. Aside from the obvious signs of the class not having the traditional chair and desk look, the students in my class are unlike any other. To be specific, the orchestra students always are enthusiastic, even on the gloomiest days and are always filled with positive energy.

However, our music department is a true exception.

Our combined choir and instrumental programs have produced phenomenally talented young adults and leaders who strive to inspire countless audience members. It is difficult to distinguish them as ordinary high school students at first glance, yet little do you know how much they are empowered through the arts.

My Project

Within our music program, there are a lot of students who go to compete together. When we compete, students have to wear special marching and Colorguard uniforms, as well as tuxes and gowns. With a multitude of students participating, it is very hard to organize all of our uniforms altogether.

Clothing racks are an easy way to help us organize all our garments.

Most bands already have clothing racks to organize their things, so having them would help our program catch up. If the students' clothes are organized, they won't have to worry about getting their items misplaced and will be able to focus better on their competition.
