My students need 30 recorders and recorder method books to help them learn how to play a musical instrument.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
The joy of playing music can last a lifetime, but only if students are given the opportunity to actually learn how to play music! I have a class of 30 very enthusiastic sixth-graders that would greatly benefit from an introduction to instrumental music through a set of recorders.
The students at my school have very supportive parents, but don't necessarily have the resources needed to provide everything they need for school.
They are bright, enthusiastic kids that would dearly love to learn how to play music, if only they had instruments to play on.
I teach the instrumental and choral program at my school. Over 33% of our school is already enrolled in a performing arts class. I see the joy that those students experience with music everyday and it's obvious that music has become an important part of their lives. I also have a music exploration class full of students that haven't yet realized how wonderful music can be. I would love to give my students in music exploration the opportunity to discover the joy of playing music. This can easily be done with a class set of recorders and the accompanying method books.
These recorders will be the gateway to convincing my students how fun it would be to join the school band or choir.
There are numerous studies about how studying music improves students test scores, but even more importantly, it improves the quality of life. Please help me inspire these kids to be life-long music lovers!
