Goal

Provide proper equipment for Percussion students use in rehearsal and performance and to make the entire Band sound better. Also to provide enough stands for increased class sizes that don't fall over. 

 

What will be done with my students

Teaching Percussionist proper use and playing technique for suspended cymbal. Playing percussion is difficult, a wind player learns 1 instrument but a percussionist has to learn many. All have a different approach and technique for success.
Teach students proper posture when playing with proper equipment. The students stands won't stay at eye level or can't hold a few pieces of paper without toppling over. Students have to spend time focusing on their equipment rather than on the lessons at hand or the music we are making.
The use of this equipment is continuous for many years to come affecting the 10-15 percussionist and the 175 members of my band and choir programs for the next 10-15 years, with the potential to last even longer. 

 

Benefits to my students

Students who have proper equipment are more likely to have a proper sound and be proud of the music they produce. As a result my students are able to provide a better performance for the community of New Smyrna and Volusia County.
From the students perspective they will no longer be frustrated by not being able to do their best because of equipment malfunctions or poor quality equipment.
