My Students

My kids have had the opportunity to experience mallet instruments for the past two years. Basic skills are what we have learned. We are ready to take it to the next level. They love giving concerts and always sing and play their hearts out. We are becoming more diverse as children are coming in from other countries to our area.

My students love to have fun while learning.

I want them to experience a greater depth of musical instruments and styles.

There is much talent to uncover and my students would benefit greatly from new instruments they've never experienced before.

My Project

I am always looking for new and exciting ways to teach my kids musical concepts. Adding kickballs to my classroom will get the kids up and moving and provide the extra physical activity that they all need.

Students learn best by doing.

I firmly believe that you can never have to many movement activities in the music classroom. Using playground balls will engage those kids who love to move. Those who love a challenge and those who just need lots of variety in their day. Please help me give my students a new and fun way to learn music while getting exercise at the same time!
