My Students

Our school is a culturally diverse, high-poverty Title I population. Ninety-two percent of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. All of our teachers believe that every single one of our students has the ability to learn and wants to be successful. Because of our beliefs we have been an A+ rated school for three years in a row!

Our students are extremely motivated to learn about the world and express themselves any way they can!

Students at our school yearn for a creative outlet and love the music, art, and physical education programs that our school has to offer. Despite their interest, many of our students lack the resources to participate in extracurricular activities outside of school and greatly appreciate any form of self-expression we can provide.

My Project

Resources make a world of difference to young band students. If students can afford the top of the line instrument and materials there is no limit to what they can achieve. Unfortunately our students do not always have access to these resources and they must rely on the school to provide.

We have two excellent Tuba Players in 6th Grade this year and they are ready for upgraded mouthpieces to take them to the next level.

The Conn Helleberg is the most famous tuba mouthpiece in the world, and it comes very reasonably priced! Named after the preeminent tuba player of his time, August Helleberg from the Sousa band, the Helleberg is renowned for its deep, rich and organ-like tone. Want pedal tones? Helleberg. Want High Fs? Helleberg. In a word, Helleberg. It is everything you want a tuba mouthpiece to be.
