My Students

"If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow." ~John Dewey

I teach general music in a high poverty inner city public school in Indiana.

Our school has 600 students who love the arts! They are curious, enthusiastic, hard-working, and respectful. They come to music willing to sing a new song, learn a folk dance, play a rhythm instrument, choreograph movement to a song, write a rap, work on a composer project, take tests, and write thank you letters to donors from DonorsChoose! My students know that I have an open-door policy in my room! If I don't have a class, they are always welcome to come hang out! Usually this means that they are rehearsing choreography for choir, practicing a song, playing the bells, recopying their Donors Choose thank you letter, or just letting me know how their day is going!

My Project

I am requesting a mini iPad, headphones, and a case for my students! We have been going on an exciting new journey in the music room thanks to the kindness of generous donors who funded our first two iPad projects! My students love technology, and using iPads is a dimension which my students need, understand, and are engaged by. There are apps for music theory, sight singing, practicing skills in rhythm, melody, harmony, and of course, Garage Band where they can learn to play a musical instrument or compose their own song! Presently, we are using two wonderful apps for learning the names of the notes: Staff Wars and Treble Cat! It's amazing how focused and determined the kids are while they are learning and having fun! I've also found an incredible app called LOOPY! The kids can create music with Loopy by layering looped recordings of their voices! FUN! Having this additional iPad will make it possible for more students to create, explore, and experience the magic of music!

My students deserve every opportunity to explore and create in music.

They can learn the elements of music, become budding composers, and performers! They'll learn how to mix, master, and share their music! To go on these new adventures, my students need another iPad! Thank you so much for considering this project and for supporting my incredible students! All Aboard! Next stop: iPad Station!
