My Students

Students at my school will be getting a chance they've never had before! Band! We are starting it up from the ground floor. My students are excited about learning music and an instrument. Music provides an outlet for my students. Our first program will be about 40 students from grades 7-10. We are looking forward to bringing pride to our Cougars! With that being said, larger instruments are expensive. We need help with donations for instruments to get started with!

My Project

I have started a new band program at our charter school. In order for my students to be successful, they need good quality instruments and accessories. With the purchase of these accessories, my clarinet players will be playing on better equipment that will not only make them sound better, but make the whole band sound better! Mouthpieces, reeds, ligatures and neck straps all play an important role in the clarinet sound. Clarinet sections can make or break a band so it is important for them to sound amazing! Also included is a mouthpiece puller for my brass players. Often they get stuck and we need a safe way to remove it!
