We learn how to play guitars as a class so the students know what it’s like to really make music. I run my class like a music appreciation course. As a music educator, I think the best way to appreciate music/musicians is to put yourself in their shoes. These students spend the first part of the year learning how to read rhythms and notes on a staff, which also improves math and reading skills. We then spend time doing bucket drumming (our maintenance staff saves buckets from waxing the floors) so they can learn how to play together as an ensemble. Once we get to guitars, they are so excited! However, I am several guitars short for my largest class of 21 students. These students get half as much practice and classroom instruction because they must share with another student. These guitars would give everyone a chance to learn equally, and improve classroom management for me.
