Rise Up And Sing
My students need a set of risers, to feel like professional musicians to project their beautiful voices.
Picture young musicians getting on the stage for the first time, but being shadowed by their peers. Risers will help our students build confidence and stage presence when performing at their concerts.
In Rhode Island, music programs are being cut more and more.
At our school, however, we focus special attention on Music and the Arts, to give our students the knowledge to help them succeed in more areas, and expose them to diverse and fascinating choices for college and the world beyond. Our K-2 students love all of the joys of music: singing, dancing, playing instruments, composing and much more. We give much attention to the performance aspect, to prepare them to be confident in music, and to help them become leader in their communities.
These beautifully designed 3-step risers are the perfect way to project the wonderful voices of our young musicians. With our tight space, performance opportunities don't always fully showcase the talent of our students. Our vision is to prepare our students in the way professional musicians rehearse and perform in choirs and other ensembles.
With such a strong and necessary focus on Music and the Arts at our school, this project will bridge the gap between beginning musicians and developing performers.
We would love to build our program in the best interest of our students, and we appreciate any contribution. Thank you for your help and generosity!
