Help me give my students a music experience that will encourage educational success.
I have the opportunity to teach all third and fourth grade students at Albertville Elementary School. Each class group has its own personality. I enjoy the fast pace and the ability to connect with each student when they come to music class. My students encourage one another to do their best. When one student is successful, the entire class celebrates them by using our special music class celebrations.
Music class allows each student to express creativity and connect with other students.
My students are so talented! They are always up for a challenge and are able to exceed my expectations. Seeing my students smile when they have accomplished a goal is both exciting and rewarding. From playing instruments to using their singing voices, the students at AES are learning their personal potential to be successful.
If there is one thing students LOVE about music class it’s playing instruments! Every day, without fail, someone asks: “Do we get to play instruments today?”. I love to provide my students with quality instruments and to teach them real skills they can use throughout their lives. I asked my classes to “vote” on their favorite instrument. Out of three choices, the ukulele was definitely a crowd favorite! My students are excited about the opportunity to learn to play the ukulele together.
Funding for AES Great Ukulele Undertaking would provide enough instruments for each student to hold a ukulele when they come to music class.
Students will learn skills including playing technique, chord structure and progression, tuning, and performance technique.
Music allows students to be successful no matter their age, grade level, or abilities. Music education increases community among students, fosters learning in other subject areas, and increases students’ critical thinking skills. Learning to play the ukulele will motivate students to be successful while providing a fun way for students to learn more about the wonderful world of music!
