My Students

I have a small and growing band program. My students are energetic and excited young musicians.

I am in my third year at a small urban school in Connecticut.

When I came to the school 2 years ago, there had not been an instrumental program for a number of years. In my first year, I was able to start a small band. At the end of my second year, I had 20 students in the band program. My band students are motivated to learn about music and love to perform for the school and community. Unfortunately, my school does not have money in the budget to purchase an adequate supply of reeds for the number of students that I have in the band program.

My Project

My clarinet and saxophone players are in need of reeds. Reeds are a consumable item and need to be replaced when they get chipped or worn. Due to the economic condition in my school, my students' parents are not able or willing to purchase replacement reeds for the children.

In order for my clarinet and saxophone students to be successful in their music instruction, they must have reeds that are in good condition.

I am looking forward to the growth of my band program and the feeling of pride and accomplishment my students feel as young performers.
