It is very sad I think but California schools don't have hardly any money anymore to use for music. Last year my school only had enough money for 30 minutes of music each week and this next year it might be less or none. My school needs to use its money to pay the teachers and stuff like that. So my goal is to spend my summer trying to help raise money to get more music lessons at my school.
I know that it is hard for one person to change a problem like this that is soooo HUGE! But I think that if a lot of families and stores find out that we need help, and then maybe a lot of them can help even just $1 each, then I think we can do it.
All of the money donated will go to my school PTA. www.greenelementarypta.com They promised to use all of the money I get donated on music. I would love to raise enough money to get a drum teacher. I found out it cost $15,000 for 30 minutes per week last year, so this is why any money at all that you can donate will REALLY REALLY help. I know that I need lots and lots of people to help.
I can't wait to reach this goal because I will be so happy and excited to surprise my school music teacher and my principal with this amazing good news! I have been going to the houses around my school talking to the people who live close by in case they have children who have gone to my school at sometime in the past. But I am only permitted to go when my parents can go with me. So this makes it a little harder to get the word out.
If you decide to donate money, I will be so happy to send you a small gift to say thank you. It will be a small clay sculpture if you live near San Diego or it will be a drawing if you do not. Either way, that is my way of telling you how much i appreciate that you also care about the things that I care about. I will ask for your address in an email after you donate.
If you do not think that music is really important then please look at the video to see why some people do think it is important as well as fun.

I was 9 years old when I started this project. I am 10 years old now and I really want to learn how to play the DRUMS!!!
