Mr. Barrow from Evansville IN is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Supplies for Success!

My students need the proper reeds to produce a mature sound on their instrument. My percussion students are also in dire need of proper sticks and mallets to produce the proper sound on their instruments.

My Students

My high school students come from low income, high poverty families. Although their parents work hard to provide their children with the opportunity to participate, it is difficult for most families to provide the funds to be fully successful within a band program.

Band students are some of the most hard working individuals, as well as some of the most kind.

All of the band students I have come in contact with over the years of being involved have always been some of the most accepting individuals I have known.

My Project

We are in need of the proper reeds in order for my students to truly be successful within our band program. Most Woodwind instruments require a reed, and as you advance in your playing, you must adjust the type of reed you use based on your level.

My percussionists need to have matching sticks in order to properly make a sound on their instrument.

Currently, we do not have any matching snare sticks, and only 2 pairs of matching keyboard mallets. This makes the process of making music difficult, and at times frustrating. My students do a wonderful job of pushing through these difficulties, but to be able to provide these materials would show them that they truly deserve the proper materials to be successful.
