Mr. M. from Kissimmee FL is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Take a Stand!

My students need more music stands to support the growing number of students in our music program. We sometimes have 5 ensembles rehearsing at once, and this will certainly help with the strain on our resources.

My Students

At my school, I am fortunate to have some of the most passionate, talented, and pleasant students! They work hard every day to become great musicians. They love what they do, and our school provides a very safe and fun environment for them.

Our students are so dedicated they come in an hour before school to practice, and also give up part of their lunch to work on their music.

I am fortunate every day to work with these fine young musicians!

My Project

We will be able to have more music stands when multiple groups of students are rehearsing all at once. With so much talent at our school, we want to make sure every student has the supplies needed to be successful. The addition of these new stands will give more students an opportunity to rehearse or practice at the same time.

Your donations will help ensure that our students have great equipment to help their daily success and growth as young musicians.

These new music stands are high quality, and our students deserve the best possible equipment. Thank you for donating!
