Our school serves students grades K-5. Students in the S.T.I.C.K. Drumline Club are eager to learn how to play the drums. There is a wealth of enthusiasm among the students and they need equipment to realize their full musical potential.
BMES is a title 1 Magnet School where 100% of the student population receive free breakfast and lunch.
Having this many students at or below poverty level means that asking them to provide their own instruments or accessories can prove very challenging.
Despite their circumstances the students have demonstrated great determination in the face of adversity. The students exposed to music today will prove to be the leaders and musical prodigies of tomorrow. S.T.I.C.K. Club Rams exemplify the 'esprit de corps' necessary for a thriving band program.
The sticks, mallets, drums and cymbals provided in this project will provide a much needed avenue for musical expression for these underprivileged elementary-age children. Having this equipment will serve as an incentive and positive reinforcement for the lessons given in class.
Adding color to our lives in a special way, music is art in one of its truest forms.
Its ability to simultaneously evoke emotion from the performer and the listener is unique and powerful. Harnessing this power is essential to seeing the world in a new and exciting way. S.T.I.C.K. Club is dedicated to Improving Every Day!
Students will learn to improve their Sound, work together to build Teamwork, and learn to play the drums with Intensity to enhance their Creativity and Knowledge. Students who are exposed to music exhibit improved cognitive function.
