Our Traveling Instrument Program for Elementary Schools in Lee County Needs Your Help to Replace Our Instruments!
Since 1991 the Music Foundation of SW Florida has been sending sets of musical instruments to the majority of elementary schools (5th grades) in Lee County each year. Students able to have hands-on introductory experiences with band and orchestra instruments under the direction of their music teachers. The purpose of this experience is to build interest and motivation for students to be part of a band and/or orchestra in middle school and even play an instrument for a lifetime.
Let’s turn this ............................................................................................... into this
5th Grade Traveling Instrument Program
What can you do?
· Make a monetary donation of whatever you wish - online or by mail
· Donate a musical instrument.—we can repair them, if needed, and use them in our Traveling Instrument Program or loan them to students who are unable to afford rental or ownership. In some cases after graduation the instrument becomes theirs.
Two sets of instruments circulate around elementary schools in Lee County. Our intention is to purchase these instruments as one set of instruments. Therefore the costs will be doubled to reach our $17000 target.
Flute $ 350
Clarinet $ 350
A. Sax $ 700
Trumpet $ 500
Trombone $ 700
Violin $ 400
Viola $ 600
Currently over 4,000 students per year use these instruments!
To replace them our goal is to raise $17,000 by August, 2018
That equates to $1200 per month.
You can help!
