My students are inquisitive, thoughtful and creative! The school has had an itinerant music teacher, which did not lend itself to the care and investment in music instruments. We are in desperate need of quality xylophones to allow the students to develop and express their musicality.
Investing in these instruments will give students the opportunity to quickly perform music.
This in turn will directly influence the whole child by building confidence, self-esteem and teamwork!My students deserve a top-notch education.
We need a set of alto xylophones made by Suzuki with rosewood bars. We will sing, dance and create melodies using the alto xylophone. These xylophones will add to the teamwork, collaboration, and creativity in the music room.
It is very exciting to watch a student use a xylophone to learn how to read music, sing, and work with others.
It is an immediate sense of how each of us can make music.
Carl Orff said,"Since the beginning of time, children have not liked to study. They would much rather play, and if you have their interests at heart, you will let them learn while they play." This is what these instruments add to our classroom.
