Ms. Henderson from Wenatchee WA is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Time for a Refresh

Help me give my students guitars! I have some guitars in my inventory that have been at the school for years (well before I came to the school) and they were hand-me-downs from the high school!

My Students

My students are performers in a unique style of music. They are studying Mariachi music. They are hard workers and love the music! Every day I see the passion that they bring.

Students in my district are able to learn and perform Mariachi music from grades six through their senior year.

We also have two elementary schools that offer Mariachi music after school. Some of the students have such a strong connection to the music that they continue to play after they graduate.

My Project

Most of the guitars in my inventory were really old when I came on board in 2013. They were hand-me-downs from the high school, and when they got to my middle school, they were played pretty hard. It's time to refresh them!

Students use these guitars every day in the mariachi and guitar classes at my school.

Some of them are so old that the repairs necessary cost more than the instrument. Bridges are pulling off, making them unplayable and it is a distraction when I have students having to share guitars. With the new guitars, students will not be afraid to play them for fear of them breaking, and they will look better on stage with guitars that are newer.
