The double bass is large and impractical for students to carry on public transport. To ensure our double bass musicians can practice and perform at school, instruments must be available for use in the Music Department.
We currently have four students playing the double bass and only one instrument in good enough condition to be played publicly.
This year Friends of Music, in conjunction with the Music Department, are planning to acquire 4 new double bass instruments. At a cost of $2,000 to $2,500 per instrument, we need help to raise the funds.
A donation to the Arts and Cultural Fund will strengthen and develop the knowledge and skills of MHS double bass players now and into the future.
