Purpose: To be able to include more students in instrumental music by providing school-owned instruments for those students who are not able to afford their own. Providing excellent quality instruments will improve the sound of our entire band and provide a more enriching experience for all students involved.
Benefit: This alto saxophone is a popular instrument with students and will be well utilized in marching band, concert band, and jazz band. The educational benefits of playing music are numerous. Students who play in their school ensembles are shown to have better test scores, higher grades, more pride in their school and higher self confidence. These students learn the value of discipline, team work and personal responsibility.
