When some people look at my students, they see children raised in urban poverty. They see 10 year olds who look after their younger siblings, 8 year olds who play basketball in the street, and 5 year olds that cannot get help with their homework because their parents work late. I teach music at a Title 1 school in urban Savannah, GA. When I look at my students, I see children who need an outlet for creativity. I see children who love to sing, dance, play instruments, and create music. Most of them cannot afford after school piano lessons, and one hour a week in my classroom is all the musical training they get. It may be the only creative outlet they get. My job is to help them get the most out of that one hour, and to use music to help mold creative, responsible, music-loving people.
