Mrs. Gordon from Inman SC is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

The Power of Performance

Help me give my students the experience of performance! Equipment and instruments wear out over time, and our microphone stands, music stands, cables, and Boomwhackers have done just that.

My Students

"I did it!" Not all students experience success in every class every day. I design my music classes so that all students experience some success every day.

The best way to succeed in music is to have a variety of instruments to help students lean and play.

This is where you come in. Please help us gather the tools to help our students succeed.

Students who succeed in music often succeed in math. Help me help these children succeed in their classes.

My Project

As students perform at the school, equipment wears out. I am in need of new Boomwhackers, music stands, mic cables and stands to help students sound and feel their best when they are on stage!

Our school presents a minimum of 6 performances per year.

Your support will help us make those concerts accessible to the community and a learning experience for the kids!

The Boomwhackers are especially helpful for my students that have different physical abilities. They are easy to hold and are played by "whacking" them on the floor. It is wonderful to see the joy of music come from a student who can't necessarily hold a recorder.
