The Kingman Middle School Band Boosters recently donated $2,833.09 worth of instruments and electronics to the school's band program. Included in the donation: Two new alto saxophones, an iPad and six Android tablets. Students use the tablets to submit assignments electronically, research music and composers, use video and audio tools and explore apps to improve musicals skills, including metronomes, tuners and music-theory exercises.
