The K-12 Music Teachers collaborated on this grant proposal and have decided on the following instrument needs: Laurie Ellis, MSK – Musser 1.5 Classic Chimes & Tenor Steel Pan;  Sandra Sharood, MLD/KCS – (MLD) Yamaha YTR-2330 Standard Bb Trumpet and (KCS) Yas 26 Alto Sax;  Tony Michaud, KES – Chromatic Xylophone Bars and Contra Bass Bar F#. 

The opportunity to learn about the arts and to perform as artists is an essential part of a well- rounded curriculum and complete education. The innovative aspect of this grant is to approach band instruction from a point of view which eliminates the financial barrier for some children.
