Ms. Stachurski from N Charleston SC is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Restoring a Band

My students need more hands on equipment and properly functioning materials to gain a lifelong love of music and learning from my class!

My Students

I am currently trying to continue building a functioning band program for ALL the students! I firmly believe that having a love for music and exploring the world of band and musicianship is an opportunity you cannot miss as a student.

The students at NWMS need the safe place for expression, creativity, and learning because they may not get that anywhere else than my classroom.

I am willing to do whatever I can to ensure their love of learning music!

My Project

Being in a Title 1 school, our resources are very limited and sometimes they don't go far enough to reach every child that needs music. Most of the instruments owned by the school are in need of GREAT repair, and can't get the work done. I need to move on from these irreparable instruments to focus on student learning.

Band is about creating music with an entire group of people visualizing the same goal.

Our outlets are our instruments! I am unable to give these children ways to express themselves in a BAND/MUSIC class if I cannot provide them with instruments and materials to do so.
