Our Mission for this trip includes several Music workshops with our students in Haiti. Several teachers will be traveling to Haiti to work with the Jose School of Music. Our goals include bringing over several drum kits, bass guitars, and amplifiers to complete the schools’ music studio. We also plan on deciding where to build 3 additional classrooms, extending the Jose School of Music. This will allow more teachers to work within the school and for more students to attend classes. We are still looking for Snark tuners, ¼ Inch cables, Guitar Strings, and a violin microphone. If you would like to contribute any of these items please contact us.
