My Students

Musical, creative, inquisitive, and energetic: these are all words that describe my students. They love to sing, move, play instruments, and learn in hands-on ways. They love to use drums, Orff instruments, and ukuleles in our music room, and they love to perform.

Around 25% of our students come from military families and this brings them their own unique set of challenges.

We have also received new students from Puerto Rico due to Hurricane Maria. I want to teach them a love for music that will last them their whole lives.

Our school, like the great majority of schools, is not immune from the misfortune of homelessness. Though our population is largely stable, we have a number of students who experience homelessness in some form during their time with us. For our students, being homeless is not something that defines them, but rather a circumstance that currently affects their lives. Enriching and exciting experiences at school can make their temporary homeless state more bearable.

My Project

I am requesting blank DVDs and CDs, plus slim jewel cases, in order to give my students to chance to create recordings.

Our All County Elementary Chorus rehearses and prepares for a few months, including several intense rehearsals, before presenting their annual concert program.

We will record their finished product to commemorate their hard work and emerging musicianship. It is so important for young students and their families to be able to celebrate these important accomplishments and be proud of hard work.

I will also use the blank CDs to provide rehearsal recordings for our All County students. Thank you for supporting this project!
