My Students

Our school serves over 800 students in grades K-8 who come from a high poverty/low income neighborhood, and one of the most historic in the city. One hundred percent of the student population qualify for free and reduced lunch. Our staff consists of teachers who are dedicated to instilling our motto of "Si se puede" (Yes, we can) in all students.

Music is new to the school, and the community is excited about the variety of musical opportunities being provided to them.

This is the first year the school district has had a full-time certificated K-8 music teacher. My goal is to provide students with a variety of music making experiences, while building community in the school and local neighborhood. All students deserve to be provided with the opportunity of discovering what music means to them through music making activities.

I believe music can be one way to bring a group of people together. It is a way to define your identity, something that students of all age groups can use to express themselves. Offering creative outlets provides balance to people of all ages, at home, work and in the community.

My Project

The concept of “coding” has been increasing in education. In our classroom, the students have been exposed to a little bit of coding through the use of banana pianos with Makey Makey kits. In addition, we’ve recently discovered the Hopscotch app, which provides great introductory tutorials on how to code and create games on the iPad, including the addition of sound effects which links to our studies in music.

Students will continue to code through the Osmo Coding Jam game while building their composition and creative skills.

One of my goals as a music educator is to provide a variety of music making opportunities to all students K-8, which includes innovative projects such as the use of Makey Makey kits and now Osmo games. The headphone splitters will allow students to work in groups of 3-4. Groups will rotate so all students will be able to use all of the games and kits we have access to, giving them the opportunity to code and create on multiple platforms.

No longer do students need to have a knowledge of western musical notation in order to compose and create. The advancement of technology and innovative products such as The Osmo Coding Jam Game allow students to build their creativity, and as an added plus learn to code at the same time.
