Mrs. Lee from West Hills CA is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bring Music Into Little Lives!

My students need musical instruments to express their feelings and show their creativity. They will create music by playing different songs with recorders. They can also learn to synchronize with a group.

My Students

My students go to a school that is in a suburban middle class area with about 800 students. My school is very diverse and the culture here is that we are very respectful of everyone's backgrounds and differences.

My students are inquisitive, fun-loving, motivated, and eager to learn.

They love literature circles, class discussion time, dance, music, and art. They love to express their thoughts and feelings through various ways such as drama, music, and art. They are always eager to learn new information and they love asking and answering questions.

My Project

We want to learn how to play recorders and learn new songs. My students are fun-loving, intelligent, and creative. They love listening to music and playing musical instruments. Some of them already know how to play a musical instruments and some want to learn. If they can all learn how to play recorders, we can do group music lessons and do a presentation in front of other students and parents, too. They will be able to concentrate and focus better with playing music which enhances their learning, too.

With ukulele, we can learn new songs and enjoy the world of music, too.
