San Clemente High School recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. From the looks of it our instruments have been around for that long.

Many of our mallet keyboard instruments are in desperate need of repair and replacement. The instruments that we currently have were purchased many many years ago and were not intended to be used as a part of a competitive marching band and drum line.

Our instruments are not made to be transported to and from band concerts and competitions. The frames are broken and the actual bars are warped.

With your generous support I can purchase 2 new keyboard instruments with stronger frames, bigger wheels,and synthetic keys. These features are a must for students that use the instruments in and out of the classroom. These features would also make the keyboards last longer so that future students would be able to use them for years to come.”
