My Students

What makes my students special is that this is a brand new music program. Since August, these students have been engaged, excited and motivated to learn music. I am proud to say that each class, all 26 classes, comes in excited and ready to learn. We are a STEAM charter school, which gives us a creative and imaginative platform to work with.

The grade levels that these resources would serve are grades Kindergarten through 8th grade.

We have been hand making instruments and the kids leave with so much gratitude and appreciation. Many students have told me that music is their favorite special and I want to give them the absolute best through music education and resources.

My Project

Please help me in starting up a BRAND new music program to our school!

Before this year, students have not had music in their schedule!

They are a high performing STEAM school and expanded this year by embracing the performing arts! Students have been super excited, engaged and motivated to learn the aspects of music!

I strive in giving my students my best and creative self, but we are limited on resources. Drum sticks will help us learn the culture of bucket drumming and rhythm, which is the sweeping the nation in music classrooms. Bell kits will help the students learn so much from notes, to scales to learning melodies. Hand drums will be versatile and wonderful to have for students k-8. The versatility of these instruments will help this BRAND NEW program get off and running!
