We Need Your Help
WE NEED TO RAISE US$2,000
TO PURCHASE 2 DRUM SETS.
Drummers form the basis of Jamaican music and help lead the band. At Alpha, more students have selected the drum as their primary instrument than another other instrument. The additional drum sets will:
- Facilitate simultaneous classroom, practice and performance activities.
- Allow students to complete their studies in a timely fashion.
- Increase access to drumming lessons for youth in the community.
