My Students

My students love music and they love coming to band! Our students need these instruments to assist them in their community performances and help them make the best sounds they can possibly make!

Our program has tripled in size since I started teaching at my school and our budget has decreased each year, so we don't have the funds to purchase basic items for the kids.

Some of these students had zero hope of ever being able to afford to play an instrument until they came to our school, where we provide an instrument to every student. Music is a huge part of Texas's education and our students deserve the best. These students have worked very hard over the past three years to grow this program from literally 40 students to over 300. They are dedicated and passionate and love coming to band. We are one of the few CCC middle schools in the North Texas area that doesn't turn students away simply because they can't afford to buy or rent an instrument and the supplies that go with it.

My Project

Some of my students have never even been on a plane, let alone been able to visit Disney World! This is a dream trip come true for many of our kids. They will have the opportunity to perform with some world class musicians and learn from some of the best in the business. They will create life long bonds and friendships on this trip with their classmates and take these memories with them long into their adult lives. We are so excited to be able to offer this trip to our students but many of students simply can't afford the price of the trip. These scholarships would allow them the chance to go on a trip of a lifetime!
