My Students

I teach choir, orchestra, and general music at a Montessori K-9 public charter school. This gives me the wonderful opportunity to get to know nearly all the students in the school, from the bubbly kindergartners to the maturing middle school students. It is a tight-knit community of teachers, parents, and students, and is highly focused on individual student growth.

My students love music and it shows!

I love seeing their eyes light up when they sing or play their favorite song, compose their own music, or master a new skill. My favorite moments are the ones when a student will come up to me and say, "Music class is the best time of the week!"

My Project

Have you ever wanted to learn an instrument? Have you ever listened to your favorite song and thought, "I'd love to learn how to play that."

With ukuleles, I can make that dream happen for my students.

My goal is to start a ukulele class for my 4th-6th grade students. This class will not only give my students the chance to learn their favorite songs, but it will teach them about chord progressions and harmony, develop fine motor skills, and give them an opportunity to learn a wide variety of music, from folk songs to classic rock and roll. They will be able to learn about the ukulele's fascinating history and its importance in Hawaiian culture. They can practice responsibility, patience, and persistence, and have a creative outlet. Ukulele is also an instrument that students can play for their entire lives and never get tired of! It is an experience that will not only impact them now, but will affect the rest of their lives.
