Boomwhacker Tuned Percussion Tubes are brightly colored plastic tubes that are tuned to musical notes. Whack just about anything and - boom! - You're making music! I teach general music to Kindergarten through Fifth Graders at Monarch Academy in Oakland, CA. Monarch Academy is a Title V elementary school, where 92% of the students receive free or reduced price lunches. The student population is 88% Latino and 12% African American. The students come to music class twice per week full of energy and enthusiasm. The Boomwhackers tubes are a fun way to get children involved in the melodic and harmonic aspects of music while learning rhythm. They will enable my students to channel their high energy and moving bodies into communal music making. At the moment, the children sing continually and use their bodies to create rhythmic patterns. The Boomwhackers will allow me to add the elements of pitch, melody, and harmony to this rhythmic work. I thank you in advance for your kind donation that will bring smiles, fun, and an enhanced musical learning experience to 350 wonderful and deserving students.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
