Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Project

My students will be utilizing these materials to build sound musical techniques. The reeds are to mature and advance our sound to the next level. The materials will help us when we present concerts for the school and the surrounding community. After the students render concerts, they will share their experiences with younger students (elementary) in hopes of encouraging them to participate in their music program. We have 200 students signed up for band next year! We could use these items!

Donations to this project will significantly impact the lives of my students in the music program and the entire school community.

For years, the students have provided meaningful service with limited resources. This is their chance to soar to new heights in their musical outreach.

Mr. Milford
Grades 6-8
