Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a fourth grade teacher at an ethnically diverse, urban school in the Piedmont of North Carolina. Eighty one percent of our school is free or reduced lunch. Many students at our school are significantly below grade level. The students in my class are incredibly enthusiastic about music! Writing songs and performing have had a high impact on my students. It is an excellent way to build interest and promote a deeper understanding of a subject. I want to incorporate music into my classroom daily. I feel that I can best do this by having a digital piano in the class to accompany students while they are singing and performing. Please help me motivate my students by purchasing a digital piano to use in the classroom.
