Mr. Stubb's Band Students
Organized by: Kim Wilson
Andrew Stubbs is the new band director at Eddy Middle School in Columbus, GA. He has classes full of students who are eager to learn about music and how to play instruments...but they don't have any. Many of his students are unable financially to purchase or rent instruments and must rely on the school's instruments. There just aren't enough to go around. That's where you come in! You don't need me to tell you that there are TONS of studies that show direct correlations between music instruction and higher test scores, better reasoning skills, and increased emotional stability (http://www.nafme.org/take-action/what-to-know/all-research/) but you do need to know how you can help. Have a band? Do a benefit! Love music? Ensure that the future generation will be there to make music! Have a business? Become a sponsor!
