Mrs. Cumpton from Spiro OK is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Stand Up for Music!

My students need great, well built music stands that will last through the ages. These stands can endure hundreds of little hands, and TONS of awesome music. The red stands highlight students of the week!

My Students

Beginning musicians to veteran high school musicians, some 100+ throughout the day.

We all walk to the beat of our own music.

We use our unique abilities and talents to create awesome beats and music for the community and student body to enjoy and embrace at sporting events and during the holidays.

Our students thrive in performing. In order to present a solid performance, it takes quality equipment. We hope you will help us as we continue our musical journey!

My Project

Students whose hands are tied up with holding/playing instruments need quality music stands to hold their music at the correct height and angle for the best possible viewing ability.

Music stands are as crucial to learning music as pencil and paper are to solving math problems.

These stands offer students the ability to individually cater the best viewing position for their own physical build, thus allowing them less worry about holding music, and more worry about PLAYING music.

Currently, many of our students have to share a music stand with someone else. This makes for difficult rehearsal and learning opportunities, especially when students are asked to mark their specific music for corrections, expressions, and reminders.

The Manhassett Music Stands are world renowned and versatile for all ensembles. Our music program has the pleasure of teaching and training approximately 100-students per day, throughout the school year. With the addition of these music stands, we will be able to accommodate more students, as they begin and continue their music education.
