Ms. Jenkins from Nashville TN is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

3rd Grade Recorder Fun

My students need recorders to explore music in a whole new way. Learning to play the recorder is a big part of our music curriculum for 3rd grade and it will also help teach patience.

My Students

Our Elementary school opens its doors every day to students from grades kindergarten to 2nd grade (growing to 4th). Our school is a free open-enrollment public charter school that loves and educates students living in Nashville.

We work hard every day to create an environment that fosters a love of learning as much as a love on our community and each other.

Our mission is to have our students grow their minds while also growing their hearts. Our students are the future!

My Project

Having these recorders for my students would mean so much! My music class is a place where students come to learn, grow and experience all different types of music. With these recorders, my students will take a journey through the world of music learning how to play songs and also take care of their recorder.

These recorders will help my 3rd grade students learn patience, responsibility, persistence and grit.

Playing an instrument is an important part of the Elementary Music experience. I can still remember when I learned how to play the recorder and I want my students to have that memory and feel the joy of making music!
