When trying to work out the details in a High School Marching Band performance, seeing is believing.

Quite often I can see things occur during a marching drill that the students do not. Even though I describe to them what is happening, it just doesn't have the same impact as if they were to see it for themselves.

The use of a digital video camera for recording rehearsals and performances would go a long way in making this process easier and more effective. We would be able to go immediately into the classroom and breakdown the problem spots with the ensemble and reinforce corrective measures.

Your generosity in support of this project could make it possible for my students to achieve a greater sense of understanding for their work as well as a higher level of pride and confidence.

Mr. B.
Grades 9-12
Nearly all students from low‑income households
