Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Project

My percussion students are very hard-working, unselfish, and very grateful for the things they do have. With little resources, they do the best way they can and do not complain about not having the best or not having at all.

Getting a set of snare and drum sticks, mallets, and a mallet bag will help them to be able to play certain pieces they couldn't before and allow them to feel what it is to have nice things without having to improvise.

This will help them in a couple of different classes, and with all our activities, our percussionist will not be stretched thin, having to use one set of sticks or mallets for multiple things. We will also have a proper place to store these items, which will protect them from accidents and being lost.

Mr. Wilson
Grades 9-12
