Music programs are so important to our students, families, and our community.  From concert band, to jazz and marching band, all Hastings bands give students a sense of pride and community, making music, learning and having fun together!  If you have been in band or had a child participate in band you know what music does for kids.   However, the reality is that band instruments are expensive.  The purchase or rental of instruments are major stumbling blocks to students starting or continuing in school music programs. School owned and donated instruments allow all interested students to participate in band, but also require regular cleaning and maintenance to make sure they are ready for our student musicians.

New instrument purchases:

  • Allow students to participate in the Jazz program if they do not play a jazz instrument as their primary instrument.  For example, oboe is not a jazz instrument, but trumpet is.
  • Provide instruments for use by students if their personal instrument is being repaired. 
  • Ensure our bands are enhanced by specialty instruments such as French horn or bass clairnet.
  • Allow the retirement of older instruments that have reached their end of life and do not play with the quality and reliability of newer instruments. Some of our instruments are 25-30 or more years old!  

We are asking you for your support to maintain the strong band programs we are so proud of here in Hastings, at both the middle school and high school, by making a donation to assist in the maintenance and purchase of new instruments and equipment.  Whether your donation is $5 or $500, it will aid in reaching our goal of raising funds to support the Hastings band programs. 

Fundraisers such as this allow us to continue the tradition of great, high quality music programs and activities throughout our Hastings schools.

We appreciate your support!
