Every June as part of Maine Public Radio’s “Music That Moves ME” series, the station collects musical instruments that listeners no longer use or need and donates them to school band programs for students who can’t afford to rent or purchase a musical instrument to use in school. The beginner band class for fifth- and sixth-graders at Prescott Memorial School in Washington recently received a full drum kit, three trombones, and a like-new trumpet through the program. In a news release, band teacher Megan Rogers said, “A lot of my students tell me that they can’t join band because it would be too expensive to rent an instrument. Some of them don’t even ask their parents because they know a monthly payment would be untenable for their families.” When Maine Public supplied the needed instruments, Rogers said, “It was like Christmas.”
