Our budding music classroom has many instrument options that students can choose from. Unfortunately, if we focus on one instrument type, there are not enough to go around! This project would allow small groups of students (approx. 6) to play a matching group of instruments at the same time. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we need to have enough instruments to go around so that students are not switching on and off during class. AKA - We have to clean resources between each child. This project would allow a whole homeroom class to have opportunities during music that ensure no child is left out because we are short a set of mallets or one hand drum. When this project is funded, my students will not have to stare longingly at the two lonely, highly sought-after hand drums we already own or play rock-paper-scissors to decide who gets to use them this week. There will be no discussion about what we could use in place of a set of mallets (because pencils are just too hard on our instruments!). We will be able to have a harmonious class where students can get their hands on instruments SAFELY and I can keep my sanity about no sharing during class time.
