My Students

Perhaps you played in band in school, or have friends or relatives who did. I hope it was a memorable experience for you, just like it is for my students. Music can be heard throughout the halls of our school - just how we like it!

My students are hard-working and love being in band!

Many are English language learners and students with disabilities. They are diverse - in one school we have dozens of languages spoken! However, all of my students are able to communicate using their instrument. Despite only a year or two of study, my students are receive top ratings at local festivals and play confidently at school concerts. Some experience more success in band than in any other area of school.

My Project

My students need new saxophone cases, music stands, and xylophone mallets. The materials I am requesting are necessary to sustain the band program. I have two alto saxophones in cases that fall apart every time they are opened. We also do not have enough music stands or xylophone mallets for all students at the concert. The materials and equipment will allow my students to keep their instruments safe and participate in the concerts we have at our school.

Right now, it's easy for my students to shrug their shoulders and accept not having the right equipment.

They know that kids in more well-resourced schools have an easier time. However, you have the opportunity to show my students that others want them to learn an instrument and have the equipment necessary to do it. Knowing that donors from across the country (and the world!) support them makes my students feel proud and more likely to continue learning their instrument in high school.
