Blast Off With Orff Part 2

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Impact the music learning of an entire school of over 400 students! I teach K-6 general music and have a school of very energetic and creative young musicians. My students learn music through singing, moving, playing, reading, and creating, but our instrument resources are very limited. We also do not have a large enough budget to cover the costs of these needed instruments. Therefore, my students miss out on rich musical activities. By donating to fund this project you will increase the quality of the music education here at my school. You will not only be directly impacting over 400 students' musical development, but the music education of countless other future students as well.
