My students don't have a music program due to lack of funding. They don't even have art. The art credit is satisfied with a theater class, but this isn't enough for most of them. Many would love to dance or paint or sing, but they have nothing. Many are juniors and seniors and they feel as if they are now too old to learn. Their physics projects are sometimes the only opportunity they have to show their creativity and innovation. Many comment on the fact they didn't even know they had such creativity within themselves. They can't wait until we reach the unit on waves where they will learn about colors and sounds. This is the only exposure many will get. Their school is composed of 100% ELL students. Every waking moment is spent learning the English language. Even though I have tried to create an after school music program so that they can have more creative opportunities, many are unable to attend because their extra-curricular activities consist of extra English and Math classes.
