Your Donations Are Important!

It may surprise you to know that as a music program, our funding from the district and school is very limited! In fact, we have already used up our site funds purchasing some much needed new instruments. That means that many of the opportunities we want for these fine young musicians, will need some help from you!

At this point, we have funds for sheet music, some minor repairs and not much else.

From your Donations, students will benefit from the following:

  • Coaching (more individualized instruction on their instrument)
  • Transportation and Fees for Music Festivals, Professional Performances, & Events
  • Master Classes
  • Instrument Purchases & Repairs
  • Sheet Music Purchases
  • Awards Banquets
  • Fun Music Excursions & Experiences

Here's how you can help!

I understand that these days, making ends meet is a challenge for many! But, there are many ways you can help to support our program and its students. Please, help in whichever ways you can!

  • Monetary Donation ($60 per trimester is recommended)
  • Instrument or Equipment Donation
  • Amazon Wishlist Item Donation
  • Volunteering for Music Events (ticket sales, student supervision, concessions, etc.)
  • Joining the Music Guild (survey linked below)
  • Attending Parent Meetings (see Google Calendars)
  • Creating a home environment that promotes practicing at home.
Donate via ASB Webstore

* You will likely need to "register" your account, as our ASB is using new software this year.
