Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students come from a large variety of socio-economic areas. They are some of the hardest working students I have ever had the privilege to teach. As a teacher, they are constantly pushing me to expand their knowledge and performance opportunities.
Our program has not only expanded the member's understanding of music and its theories but also their abilities to lead and work in teams and small groups.
The leadership team in our band has continued to come up with new and inventive ways to motivate and involve all students in our program.
We are requesting help with some basic items needed to keep our program running. Reeds, oils, neck straps, and more items that help students with the day to day playing of their instruments.
We are also looking to add to our marching percussion section to allow more students to participate in our community parades by adding a second marching bell set to our inventory.
Help us increase the participation in our parades while still helping out the other one hundred plus students in the program that struggle in purchasing their own reeds and equipment to keep their instruments functional and clean.
