My Students

Band classes at my school are open to all students, in all grade levels. The school falls under the Title I status, so most of our students are at a basic financial disadvantage; however, I will always strive to find a way to include every student who has a desire to learn more about music, regardless of his, or her, financial ability.

My band students come in each day, eager to create music and learn more about their craft.

They know that each day presents it's own set of challenges and opportunities, and they are ready for the adventure! Their attitude is wonderful and infectious, and YOU can be a part of that!

My Project

From solo performers, to small chamber groups, to full symphony orchestras, music stands are a basic necessity for all musicians. These tools enable the performers to see the sheet music they are playing.

Currently, we only have 51 music stands that service all 180 band students.

Needless to say, we need more, but we need your help. Please consider donating to our cause - any amount is GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Because of your generosity, the purchase of these new music stands will help our growing band program have the tools necessary for success!

Thank you for supporting our middle school band!
