“I have 150 students in my band program, and only 3 of them have their own instruments. Most of our families can’t afford to buy an instrument, because 93% of our school is economically disadvantaged. This donation helped so many of my students be able to be in the band and play an instrument that is in great condition. They were so excited to play the new instruments.” Heather Slater, Band Director, Wright Middle School, Nashville TN
“Music can be a powerful force of positivity and change in a child’s life – it teaches our students to be expressive, creative, disciplined, and to work as a team towards something truly meaningful. I firmly believe this is an opportunity that every child deserves, and with your organization’s help, we will be able to make that vision possible.” Zach Weber, Orchestra Director, Bobby Shaw Middle School, Pasadena TX
