My Students

For me, the sound of a band playing gives me the same feeling that being kissed for the first time did, or jumping off of a high dive or running so fast you feel like you are flying. I would like to think that these sounds will inspire my students to come to school, and love to learn.

The students at my school have discovered the sound of the band too, and they are ready to play!

3 years ago, we had 3 students in class, and now we are up to 42. This is so exciting to me I can not express it in words!... but then it is also it is also a little terrifying, because I don't have the instruments for them....yet.

My Project

With your help, I can put clarinets into the hands of students who desperately need them. Being able to play an instrument is a life long skill that will help these kids stay in school and one day go to college! My students may be high poverty. They may not have the financial ability to afford instruments, but they have the drive and potential to be great.

I believe with all of my heart that music is for anyone who wants it.

Sadly, for some students this is not the reality and the reason has to do with their ability to pay. With your help, we can make sure that all of our music students are taken care of and anyone who wants to can play.
