Create Creative Cultural Memories!

My students need DVDs, DVD stickers, and Dual DVD cases.

My Students

I am writing this proposal for my high school vocal students that participate in our Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Choirs. Our high school serves a large urban area and has a high percentage of students that are low-income.

Many of our students are highly interested and motivated in their study of vocal music.

During the school year they prepare for concerts, vocal contests and college auditions. They learn about music theory, vocal production and a wide range of vocal repertoire. "Empowering Students Through Art" is a great way to motivate our vocal students as they reach for higher levels of success in vocal performance. Engaging them as they perform music with rich cultural and historical significance enriches our students learning environment.

My Project

Currently we are working on music in five different languages - French, Latin, German, Swahili and English. Teaching students music from other cultures enriches their lives and creates challenging, diverse learning situations in our classroom. We want to create a DVD of all of our students performances this year. We are asking for cd cases, stickers, and burnable DVDs to make these keepsakes for our students. Teaching music in another language is giving our students an opportunity to learn things that they will remember for a lifetime. Creating DVDs of their learning and performances is a great way to help showcase the various cultures and languages that they have learned about during their year of choir.

Please consider being a partner in their learning through building the resources that they will use to be highly successful in vocal music.

Giving my students access to these vital and important resources will make a significant difference in how they experience music at the high school level.
