All expenses for the instrumental music program, except for our director's salary, are paid for by Keynoters.
Since we have moved all instrumental music classes to online, we have drastically reduced our suggested donation amount. However, we still need funding to allow the director to offer an engaging remote curriculum to your students. This is what your donation is going towards:
Sheet Music, Equipment and Supplies
Coaches and Clinicians to help Mr. Cloyd teach in small groups
General & Administration for our Keynoters Foundation
Suggested Donation for Each Class:
Jazz A: $100
Jazz B: $100
Wind Ensemble: $100
We know this is a tough time for many, so please know we are grateful for whatever you can donate. We appreciate your support of MVHS, Keynoters and our students during our remote learning season.
PLEASE SUPPORT OUR MUSICIANS
Significant funds are needed to produce this award winning program.
Your donations fund this program. Your contributions provide students with instruments, uniforms, sheet music, transportation to events, class clinicians, awards, and much more.
Please consider making the suggested donation (or whatever you can). Sufficient funding is necessary to prevent cancellation of planned events.
Please help us reach our goal of 100% funding. Thank you for your support of our talented young musicians.
For the 2020-2021 school year we welcome anyone interested in volunteering. For more information, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
