Resident Cellos: Providing Access!

Help me give my students access to cellos that will be used exclusively for in-class rehearsals and after school practice sessions. These "resident" cellos will always be available for students who cannot transport their instrument to/from school.

My Students

Student musicians at our school are recognized as high achievers and are committed to their academic learning. Through their creativity, curiosity, and musical exploration, they are respected as leaders and role models by their peers and teachers alike.

Our young musicians teach me every day about patience, compassion, and empathy as they develop their own identities and shape their own futures.

My challenge is to always find the most compelling ways to guide, nurture, and support my students in all of their endeavors, incorporating music as a powerful connector between their lives and the ever-changing world.

My Project

Our three string orchestras are excited to welcome a large number of cello students into our instrumental music program this year. Having a substantial group of low-voiced instrumentalists in our ensembles will benefit every musician in reinforcing critical skills in the areas of intonation, balance, and musical blend.

Many of our students walk or take the bus to and from school which restricts their ability to travel with their cello; consequently, we need to provide access for student cellists with instruments that will be designated exclusively for in-school rehearsals as well as after school practice sessions.

Having "resident" cellos that remain at school will ensure that there will always be an instrument for our young cellists to use.
