Woodwind & Brasswind Brings Music to More Than 15,000 Students During Music In Our Schools Month
Since 2007, partnership with DonorsChoose.org has resulted in over $8M in musical equipment supplied to public school programs
FREDERICK, MD (April 21, 2015) - Woodwind & Brasswind today announced that during the month of March 2015 the retailer helped to fund music projects reaching more than 15,000 students through DonorsChoose.org.
Since 2007, Woodwind & Brasswind has worked with DonorsChoose.org, an online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need. Public school teachers post classroom project requests on the site, and donors can give any amount to the project that most inspires them. Music educators can post their musical wish list based on individual classroom needs that range from ukuleles, recorders and sheet music for beginning students, to microphones and PA systems for theatrical productions, all the way to tubas, trumpets and marching percussion for marching bands.
"Three things are key to our focus on school music," said WWBW's President Steve Zapf. "One, we stock the largest assortment of school instruments and accessories in the world. Two, we have a staff of product specialists, a dedicated phone line and a special web portal just for music educators where they can get advice and special educational discounts not available anywhere else. And three, we have a terrific partnership with DonorsChoose.org that allows us to help thousands of music students every month."
Founded in 1978, Woodwind & Brasswind has been serving musicians and music educators for more than 35 years. From the company’s beginnings as a four-page hand-typed flyer, to its current format, offering over 50,000 products through its catalogue and online platforms to customers in the U.S. and more than 91 countries worldwide, Woodwind & Brasswind continues to promote the importance of encouraging people to pursue a life full of music.
