KTBA Donates New Printer for Music Classroom

Thanks to your donations this past week, Keeping The Blues Alive Foundation was able to donate to a music project in Tulsa, Oklahoma!

Ms. Seale, the school band director, was unable to print the necessary worksheets, sheet music, and documents the students needed to master their material.

According to Ms. Seale, Mclain High School is located in a poverty-stricken area with many of the students in low-income households.  All of the students qualify for free lunch.

She explains, “The copy machine in the school is unreliable and I have had to rework my lessons because I could not copy practice sheets and music. We [would] use the copy machine so that we can always be prepared and ready to learn. This will help not only the band students, but music theory students, choir students, and music appreciation students.

After bringing in all the donations, we participated in a drive to raise the funds for a Canon printer for Ms. Seale and the entire department at Mclain.  This, coupled with the assistance of sponsors at the George Kaiser Foundation, Ms. Seale will receive the printer in a few weeks!

Every week, Keeping The Blues Alive donates to a music project in need of funding.
