WESTBY, Wis. (WXOW) – The music library for the Westby Area Middle School band classes will be getting new additions, thanks to the Tools for Schools award.
Kory Dahlen is February’s recipient of the 500-dollar award from WXOW, SSE Music, and Brenengen Auto.
For Dahlen, class enrollment and the cost of instrument repair has gone up every year, shrinking the budget for new sheet music.
“This is really exciting we have great teaching tools for our kids because music is supposed to be fun but we also have to be able to teach with it and you’ve got to spend some money to get those good tunes so you can have teachable fun moments,” says Dahlen.
WXOW, Brenengen Auto, and SSE Music help one deserving teacher or class each month.
