My Students

I teach music in an urban, public high school in south metro Atlanta. I teach ninety students, a day, in two classes of guitar. I also teach seventy-five students a day in three classes of orchestra. My students range in age from ninth grade to twelfth grade. We represent ten percent of the student body at my high school.

My kids are amazingly talented!

Many are better than I am on their instruments and are going to go onto great things in life. My students are interested in playing rock, bluegrass, soul, R & B and jazz. They are very well rounded musically and love to learn new music.

All of the students on my campus come from low-income households and therefore, our music department makes it a priority to make music financially accessible to all students!

My Project

I teach ninety guitar students everyday. Each class has forty-five students. We just started ukuleles and I do not currently have enough ukuleles in my classroom for every student. This means students are sharing two to an instrument or doing without.

We need thirty capos to ukulele-ify guitars.

You do this by putting a capo at the fifth fret and muting the bottom two strings.

The capos will also help my students transpose keys and play many different songs. I like to encourage my kids to play as many different styles of music as possible and to play what they love.

The capos will allow them to find a song and transpose it to sing in a key that is good for their voice.
