Help me give my students wire shelving units to easily access Orff instruments and keep the instruments in good condition.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Music class is a time when many students are able to relax and unwind from the daily stresses in their lives. My students are excited and engaged in music class. My students are especially thrilled when we get to play instruments.
48% of my students are English language learners, but music bridges that gap and allows us to all communicate and engage together in learning.
I love watching my students make connections between music, their core subjects, and the world around them.
My students love to play barred percussion instruments, but there is nowhere to store them in the classroom! With these wire shelving units, each of our Orff instruments will have a designated spot to stay when not in use. This will cut back on the number of repairs that the instruments need due to improper storage.
Orff instruments are fantastic, fun pitched percussion instruments that can be used by all grades levels.
By having a designated space to store the instruments in the classroom, they will get more use and in turn increase student engagement. Older students will also be able to take responsibility in the classroom by taking out and returning their own instruments, something that is not possible without practical storage.
