Legacy Music Alliance funds have been a huge help in getting our new band program going and keeping it running. Last year we had to lash drum kit pieces to the kids to even go marching! When you’re starting from zero, any instruments help immensely, especially for those students without the money to rent on their own.
LMA offers us much needed financial and moral support each school year. With their support, we are able to supply our students with fine-tuned instruments and bring in professional clinicians who instruct students in a small group setting. Having that support, throughout the school year, is both comforting and uplifting to our program and is a huge benefit in the development of these young musicians.
New Marimba (ours just broke a string and one of the side legs isn’t stable): $5,000.00
Drum set heads: $250.00
Guitar amp: $750.00
Tuba cases (2): $600.00 each
LMA has been an incredible help for our program. Being an older school, many of our instruments were drastically in need of repair, and the help from LMA has helped speed up the process by which we can get those in working order. They also help with keeping our good instruments working well, so I can spend some of our small budget on new music and not just instrument repair.
