My Students

I am writing this proposal for my high school students who participate in our music program. Our high school serves a large urban area and has a high percentage of students from low income homes. Our student body is culturally diverse and provides our school community an opportunity to experience languages and customs from many cultures as we interact every day.

Many of my students do not have the opportunity to explore and experience high-quality music instruction outside of the school setting.

It is exciting to see them grow in their knowledge and excitement of music. Many of our students will continue their participation in the music program for 3 or 4 years during high school.

My Project

Our school is starting a new keyboard class. We need 15 new Sony headphones to get our students started. We have dozens of students who are interested in learning how to play a keyboard. Working headphones are a necessity for the keyboard class to succeed.

Providing students with high quality keyboard instruction will open up so many opportunities to experience music.

My students are creative and determined. I know that once they experience success they will reach for higher goals as they tackle more difficult music challenges.

Help my students experience music learning in practical and meaningful ways as they participate in keyboard instruction designed for their own abilities and interested in music.
