INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC~FARHLANDER~ Purchasing a new guitar providing students an opportunity to explore the electric guitar. It will also provide guitarists in jazz band a suitable guitar to play Jazz as not all students own a guitar geared toward playing the jazz idiom. New marching bell frames. The bell set is quite heavy and are used frequently for marching band and show choir. Typically, bells don’t last as long as we would like due to students dropping them due to the weight. The instrumental department is also currently short on suspended symbol stands. These have not been replaced in many years and are currently shabbily assembled from a variety of disparate stands. WISHES~ 1. Electric Guitar $650 2. Marching Bell Frame $596.25 3. Suspended Symbol Stands $251.80 Total= $1497
INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC~MATHIS~ The bass drums that our varsity marching band use are ready for a new set of drumheads next year and that will also require replacing the rims. This will also allow to better turn the instruments and have the students playing on high quality instruments and given them a better experience with equipment that is in top shape. May Stadium Stands would provide an important piece of equipment for the marching percussion section. These stands would allow students to rehearse and perform in the stands more comfortably by not having them wear their drums the entire rehearsal. This protects our equipment by removing the risk of drums falling when constantly mounting and dismounting from the harness. This is a crucial piece of equipment that would really make our students fell like they are in top group and allow us as the teachers to help take their education to the next level. The Zildjain Crotales has become a staple in both percussion ensemble and concert band literature over the past 10-15 years. Having access to this instrument would allow us to expand the breadth of percussion ensemble literature more regularly, which is one of Mathis goals over the next few years. It would also give the percussionists a unique opportunity to learn how to take care of an instruments from day 1 and perform on a new instrument. WISHES~ 1. Marching Bass Drum Rims (2 for each bass drum, #8) $1300 2. Randall May Stadium Stands (5 snare, 1 tenor, 5 bass) $2114 3. Zildijan Crotales (low and high octave) $1700 each at $3400 Total $6844
