Less than one year after opening our new school building, it was devastated with more than six inches of water due to Hurricane Harvey. They are resilient and eager to tackle all of the challenges they have had to face in the last few years. When they get to make music together, the joy I see on their faces makes me want to give them access to the world.
For many of my students, choir class is the bright spot in their day.
My students love to express themselves through song. Making, experiencing and interacting with quality music lets them express the feelings they might have a hard time otherwise putting into words.
We were blessed to be able to be back in our building when school began this fall. Unfortunately, we are still missing many of the items used on a daily basis. My students are thrilled to be back "home", but would be even happier if I could give them access to all of the music we had before the storm.
My students are interested in learning about all styles and genres of music. That's why I would like my students to present a concert about the history of music with songs from the classical period through today's pop music.
Music connects people.
Time, distance and other barriers fall away when people make and experience music together. Being able to give students access to quality music written specifically for their ages and voice ranges is one way I can help my students learn about the wonderful world of music. With the historical aspect of this project; we are able to explore history from a musician's perspective which sometimes motivates students to learn more on their own.
