My Students

In my classroom we dance, sing, play instruments, and experience music hands-on!

My students love to explore music in a variety of ways.

I teach kindergarten through 5th grade which creates a huge need for resources. Currently, my primary students receive music twice a week for 40 minutes and the intermediate students receive music once a week for 40 minutes. In addition, we also have a 5th-grade strings program that meets for one-third of the year twice a week for 40 minutes.

My Project

We are in need of two bass bars in order to complete the seven-note scale. Right now we are missing the notes E and B which makes patterns challenging to play in class. These are important as students learn the role of the bass line in a piece of music.

With the addition of these two bars, we will be able to complete musical patterns as well as accompany performances for the school and community.

With a variety of instruments available to students, we open up the doors to creativity in the music classroom. Students begin to experience learning in new and exciting ways!
