My Students

My students walk into the band room everyday excited and ready to learn and advance music! My students are determined to be the number 1 band in the country. Every week we say it to get all of the students motivated to perform and play!

Our school's band population represents over 80 countries!

Many of my students use school-owned instruments which are all in much needed repair or are beyond the repairing and just need to be replaced. But my students continue to perform on these instruments and love it!

They are strong academic students and look to find balance through co-curricular course offerings such as music. They are young, vibrant personalities that enjoy attending school because of the many opportunities that are presented within.

My Project

The students will be utilizing the stands and tuner to build sound musical technique. The materials will help us when we present concerts for the school and the surrounding community. After the students render concerts they will share their experiences with younger students (elementary) in hopes to encourage them to participate in their music program.

Donations to this project will significantly impact the lives of not only the students in the music program but the entire school community.

For years the students have been able to provide meaningful service with limited resources. This is their chance to soar to new heights in their musical outreach.
