My Students

Deep in the heart of our city, there lies a magical place where brilliant children, more than 90% of whom receive free breakfast and lunch, survive the struggles of their daily lives and work tooth and nail to exceed all expectations in the face of severe poverty and one of the highest crime rates in the country.

My students are the crown jewels.

My students surprise me every day. They are one of the most creative and energized bunch of kids I've seen, and in a school with such rigorous academics, challenging curricula, and the highest expectations, the need for creative outlets such as music is vital in helping mold well-rounded people and reaching the whole child.

My Project

One key to creating a successful learning community in the music classroom is assuring that all participants are seen and heard equally. Unfortunately, a square-shaped carpet greatly disrupts this basic need, alienating some students into corners, out of view and often unheard. The simplest solution to this problem is using a round carpet so students can be seated in a circle.

Sitting in a circle ensures that ALL students are essential and equal members of the learning community.

In addition, this particular carpet is an amazing learning tool in that it is decorated with musical notation, which can open up loads of musical experiences.
