Our students are high-poverty, high-needs, and highly capable. We have a diverse population, which includes many varying socioeconomic levels, as well as students who qualify for various Special Needs programs, such as Intensive Learning Center, Intensive Academic Center, English Language Learners, Special Education, Challenge Program, and much more.
We provide many opportunities for extracurricular involvement and include arts as an important part of this.
Our kids are enthusiastic and motivated and really enjoy doing things that involve more than just sitting, reading, and writing. Our kids have great potential.
This project requests small sets of boomwhackers, and octavator caps, which help make the tubes easier to play and give us a wider range of pitches. Boomwhackers are pitched percussion tubes which can be used in many ways to create team melodies and harmonies. When octavator caps are placed on one end of the tube, it not only lowers the pitch by an octave; it also provides an easier way for students to strike the tubes in a percussive fashion.
Students of all sizes and abilities can make a great musical sound and contribute to rhythmic patterns as part of a team.
Students can make music in small groups, partners, or even larger ensembles! Harmonies are easier to conceptualize when they can be experienced in this physical, cooperative and motivating way.
