Ms. Dascola from Ridgewood NY is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Trumpets - Need I Say More?

Help me give my students trumpets. Technology has brought us many wonders but can you think of anything better then being able to get instruments in kids hands for less. These instruments are great for beginners!

My Students

In our community we strive to better ourselves as both musicians and people. In the music room students work together to expand their musical knowledge and constantly seek new ways to create art.

Our music community teaches students to take creative risks and enjoy the experience of learning various musical styles.

We offer concert band, rock band, drum line, and general music. Through this creative process students learn the value of collaboration and how to express themselves in a meaningful way.

Our community hopes to continue building an environment that fosters a love for music far beyond the halls of our school.

My Project

Currently our school has 250+ students in our music classes with about 50 instruments to go around. As anyone can guess, this causes various issues throughout the day and the school year. Though all of my students would like to participate in adjudication (competition) we are limited to the amount of inventory we have.

Currently we have 8 working trumpets, so adding a 2 more would really round out our section and give up to 10 students (2 per class) an additional opportunity to play.

As stated before these would be used with our beginning 6th graders and as they progress will "graduate" to actual metal trumpets.

The experience alone of having an instrument to play can impact students in the most amazing ways. Consider giving a gift of music that will stay with these students far beyond middle school.
