Miss Kumar's music students: Melvin E Sine has a tradition of excellence in its band program. Many students go on to be successful at Apollo High School. As a severely low socio-economic area, we have a high rate of students needing school instruments in order to participate. We have borrowed from neighboring schools in the past, but as those band programs and ours grow, we need to add instruments.

Low brass students are often unable to bring instruments back and forth due to size; they have to walk long distances or bike to school. Having an extra instrument at school would help students keep up with their home practicing.We are at the threshold of moving up into more intricate literature, but need practicing to happen to make that a reality.

Playing in the band allows these students to experience success, something that their home lives, test scores, or grades don't necessarily give to them. Your donation will allow the Sine band program to shine like the Stars they are!

It is a pleasure to know a music student in Glendale will be putting to good use the trombome our son Danny played in the Marshall Ranch Jazz Band during his 7th & 8th grade years. He is now a Senior at Cactus High School.
