My students need saxophone mouthpieces, ligatures, and reeds to improve their sounds and stock our supply cabinet.
"People who make music together cannot be enemies, at least while the music lasts."-Paul Hindemith Our band program is made up of over seventy students grades 5-12. Most of our kids will grow up together and go to school together from Kindergarten through graduation. Our band is like a big family.
The school provides all band instruments, as well as supplies such as reeds and valve oil to all students involved in the band program at no cost to the students.
Most of our students could not afford to be in band if this policy was not in place. Providing all instruments and supplies puts quite a strain on our limited school budget and at times materials we just have to wait for resources. Despite the limited resources, the Eden Bulldog Band is successful and does their best with what they have. The students have creative ways to help make things work and even give love offerings whenever they do get something from the supply cabinet. The band is made up of a group of students who truly love making music and work extremely hard every day despite their circumstances.
My project will give all the saxophone players in my program new mouthpieces and ligatures which will not only improve their sound, but it will also help facilitate easier playing for all levels. My project requests also reeds for my saxophone players in grades 5-12. Reeds cost at least $3.50 a piece. At that cost many of my students would not be able to play a reed instrument if required to furnish their own. With a very small supply budget that needs to furnish all instrument accessories for over 70 students, I have to be very selective in handing out reeds. Unfortunately, this means at times students are playing on a reed that really needs to be replaced, which has a negative impact on their playing. The reeds I have requested would be distributed to the students as needed so they can play their instruments to the best of their ability.
All students will be able to get a new reed when they need one instead of keeping a one that needs to be replaced because our supply is low.
These students will also have new mouthpieces and ligatures to play their saxophones with which will improve the sound of the older school instruments.Read More
