The drums and drum sticks I chose will help finish off a class set of drums so that each student can use one instead of sharing. I added some of the other instruments in smaller quantities so that the students can be exposed for their sounds and learn about other cultures. We also use many instruments in our grade level programs. Some grades have four classes, which is about 85 students, so we need as many as we can get! When the students come to music class, I love to have them engaged in the lesson through instruments, singing, dancing, and of course having fun. Seeing their success and creative sides through musical expression is the most rewarding thing.
