Goal

The goal of this grant is to be able to provide quality instruments to students studying music at John Hopkins Middle School. The money granted will go to purchasing a new drum kit for the school.  

 

What will be done with my students

Students have the opportunity to learn to play the drum set in various ensembles. Many instruments in the department are beyond repair and need to be replaced. Often students are not able to afford to rent or purchase some of these expensive instruments. Funds acquired will be used immediately to fulfill the need for a new drum set. The drums are used in the Jazz Ensemble and Steel Drum Band at John Hopkins.  

 

Benefits to my students

All percussion students in the program will have the opportunity to play the new drum set purchased if the grant is awarded. The students benefit from this by having quality instruments at the school that can be used for learning, rehearsals, clinics, and performances in the school and in the community.  

 

Describe the Students

The students at John Hopkins Middle School are bright, motivated, and fun to teach. They come from many different backgrounds that range from low to high income. However, although many students are beginning to discover their great musical talent, they are not able to afford to purchase certain instruments, such as a drum set, that they wish to play. They gain access to instruments through public schools such as John Hopkins. As a teacher of music, I believe each student deserves the chance to find their own undiscovered passion in the arts whether it's music, or another arts discipline: art, drama, audio/visual, etc.
