THE STORY:

Lucy Goodman wrote -

Founded in 1991, Education Through Music (ETM) is a non-profit organization that forms long-term partnerships with disadvantaged New York public elementary and middle schools and provides them with music programs that the students in these schools wouldn’t be exposed to otherwise. Certified professionals are hired to teach and inspire the students to play various instruments, such as brass, string, percussion, and vocals. The program has also been proven to result in higher grades, attendance rates, and enthusiasm from students, because the happiness and sense of achievement that music brings them motivates them to do their best. The school that I will be helping is PS 42 in the South Bronx. They are starting a new fifth grade band program this year but they do not a have a lot of money. When I was in fifth grade, I was fortunate enough to be part of a percussion band. It made me realize how much I loved drumming and making music. I want other kids to have the same opportunity I had so I would like to purchase a bass drum kit for the band program, which costs $1,795.87. If I can raise more, I would like to buy a band cymbal set for $681.87. Any amount of money that I am able to raise would be very helpful to the PS 42 Band Scholarship Fund, which helps kids to rent their own instruments. Please consider helping me to purchase these instruments for PS 42. No donation is too small. Thank you, Lucy
