At Bravelets you can purchase jewelry with the words “Be Brave” on it. For every item you order $10 goes to the general fund to support students in all the music programs. These items are Santa Teresa blue and come in silver or gold tone.
For many students stepping out on the marching band field or standing up on stage to play a solo takes more courage than you might think. The hours of practice and rehearsal help them build the skills and confidence to Be Brave.
Also supporting the general fund is the STMAA Cafepress online store. With more than 500 items to choose from finding a way to support your favorite musicians has never been easier. One of my favorite designs is “Save The Season” on a hot thermos for those chilly nights in the bleachers waiting for “The Santa Teresa High School Marching Band and Color Guard to take the field in competition.”
If you are looking for a quick way to boost an individual student’s account, We Care Coffee has been an ongoing option for several years. Coffee, cookie dough and hot chocolate are available for single orders or ongoing subscriptions. Just type in the student musician’s name at check out and the fund raising profits will be sent to STMAA to be credited. This hot chocolate goes very nicely in the Save The Season Thermos.
Each student in the music programs is enrolled in at least one class of musical instruction during the regular school day. All of the extra competitions, guest instructors, music festivals and marching band competitions are funded entirely through donations. The Santa Teresa Music and Arts Association (STMAA) was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit for the benefit of education in the area of music. This organization is run entirely by volunteer parents of Santa Teresa High School musician students. If you are interested in volunteering please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Direct tax deductible donations in support of the entire program or designated to support your favorite musician can be made securely through our Paypal link. Please add the student’s name if you are making a designated donation.
Thank you for showing your support for the Santa Teresa High School Musicians!

Now it the time to get your instruments annual maintenance done. Pads, valves and other parts need to be checked out and in for work before the field season and classes start. Waiting until you need it is too late. Get it in this week to have it back in time for the next All Band practice on July 17th.
Getting case latches fixed is crucial, too. Having your instrument or part of it hit the ground because it fell open is tragic and costly.
