My Students

My students are not like any others. They come to class eager to sing, dance, play instruments and most importantly, learn. Music helps my students relieve stress. It helps them have a break from their everyday school work. It gives them a creative outlet.

My students go above and beyond what is expected of them.

My school also does not have a lot of music supplies, and my students deserve all the resources they can get their hands on. Unfortunately, there is no performing ensembles at my schools, so any supplies received from here will be a huge benefit for my scholars.

My Project

This keyboard will help my students warm-up for choir rehearsal. Our school can not take our old grand piano with us to the new building, so we need to replace it. Our students have not had choir in several years, so when I create a choir, I will be ready to lead them in rehearsals with this new keyboard.

This brand new, digital piano will make my students into beautiful, tuneful musicians.

In addition to choir rehearsals, my students come to general music class ready to sing and play instruments. It is a challenge being limited to ukulele and guitar, so having this piano will be a huge advantage.

There are also a lot of pianos in our old school that will be brought over to the new building. When these pianos are brought over, my students will learn how to play songs they enjoy on their own pianos.

This new piece of music technology will find that it will go along nicely with the other technology in my new music room. It is time to bring my music room into the 21st century, and this new digital keyboard will be a great addition!
