We Love Music and Need Instruments!

My students need these percussion instruments: drums, triangles, claves and tambourines, and a protective stand for our wonderful guitars.

My Students

Our school is a vibrant, innovative K-8 public charter school that cares deeply for our music education program. All the way from our little rockers in Kindergarten to our big rock stars in middle school, our students LOVE music and NEED more instruments!

Our school is extraordinarily racially, ethnically and socio-economically diverse, with no large majority of any specific racial group.

We find strength in this diversity, and find that music is a powerful way to bring all corners of our community together. Over 65% of our students qualify for free and reduced price meals and over 25% of our students are English Language Learners. A California Distinguished School Award recipient, ranked 6th out of 809 public charter schools in California, our school strives to provide a wonderful education, rich in music, arts, foreign language and hands-on learning experiences, despite our limited financial resources.

My Project

Percussion is an essential part of a quality music education program and our instruments are used by all WCA students, from K - 8th grade. We are in need of percussion instruments: drums, triangles, claves, tambourines, as well as a stand to protect our greatly loved and (hopefully) growing guitar collection. Our music program is a vibrant part of our school. Imagine the magic of walking onto a public school campus and hearing young voices raised in song coming from one room and the sound of enthusiastic drumming and percussion coming from another. Imagine a group of pre-teen girls sitting outside together strumming guitars and ukuleles, while another group of middle school students work on the lyrics and music for an original song. Until our music program budget was recently cut, these images have been a wonderful reality on our campus. We hope we can raise sufficient replacement funding to ensure this reality continues.

Our Academy has a clear commitment to arts education and research shows that students who have quality experiences with the arts develop self confidence, and learn skills that assist them in becoming stronger students in their other studies.

As well stated by one of our students, "I'm surprised by the different instruments that have learned to play and I LOVE to rock out!"
