KTBA Donates Reeds and Method Books to Jr. High Classroom

KTBA Funds Reed and Method Book Program

VILLE PLATTE, LA – Thanks to your donations, Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation funded instrument reeds and brand new method books to Mr. James Price’s music program at Ville Platte High School.

About the Project

In order to make my students’ (and my school budget’s) lives a bit easier, I am looking for some assistance in picking up reeds and method books for my elementary, middle, and high school band programs,” Mr. James Price inquires.  “The elementary, middle, and high schools are currently beginning the rebuilding process. Most of the students in our program are in need of some form of assistance. Anything helps. This donor’s program will help ease the cost on some families who would otherwise not be able to let their children participate! We are thankful for anything you would be willing to donate!”

As one could imagine, many families are tasked with the burden of funding all their little niños’ adventures in school which also includes music instruments. Those that have multiple children understand the burden of trying to give their children more opportunities to learn different skills but trying to make that money stretch!

Thanks to the generous donations from music lovers like YOU, KTBA was able to fully fund Mr. Price’s project. Now, at least a few dozen families will be able to allow their child to participate in music programs because of this expense being covered!

Mr. Price expresses his gratitude:

Dear Keeping The Blues Alive Foundation, Inc.,

I am utterly blown away by your generosity and kindness in our journey to build the VPHS band program. With your support, we are achieving amazing new heights and it is all because of amazing people like you. Know that all donations are going directly to the students, and are immensely appreciated!!

With gratitude,
Mr. Price
