My Students

My students are naturally excited about music. Many of them come from cultures where music is deeply ingrained in day-to-day life. I often feel like the student in the classroom, while my students teach me about music!

Music class is always exciting, but can also be noisy.

Many of my students suffer from noise sensitivity. Music class can be challenging for these students, who would like to enjoy activities such as singing and instrument-playing, but can be easily overwhelmed by the sound.

My Project

As much as my students enjoy music class, many of them have noise-sensitivity that keeps them from enjoying the full experience of singing and playing drums and instruments. I often see students with no other documented special learn⁹ing needs holding their ears during those activities that allow for full class participation of making music.

All children deserve to "sing out" and "rock on" without stress!

Having the option to wear noise reduction headphones would eliminate the worry that music class might be a trigger for anxiety, and give other students peace of mind knowing that their full participation won't negatively affect their classmates' experience. Thanks for your help.
