My Students

My students are the best! They are well-mannered, polite, and appreciative of what the teachers and staff do every day to make their learning experiences enjoyable. I look forward to seeing them and making music with them each day.

The 5th grade students at our school are eager to learn how to play a band instrument this year.

They come to class with a positive attitude and ready to learn, but not all of them have an instrument available to play.

I hope that the projects on Donors Choose will provide them with more materials for learning an instrument this year and beyond.

My Project

The resources chosen to fulfill this project include 2 trumpets, 2 alto saxophones, and a box of 25 saxophone reeds.

Several of my 5th grade students would love to play the trumpet and alto saxophone this year but do not have an instrument.

With your help, I can furnish 4 students with brand new instruments to borrow for the year. Additionally, the saxophone players will appreciate having extra reeds if their reeds chip. The instruments currently owned by my district are in poor condition. Students have much more success learning how to play an instrument that is shiny and new, not broken.
