Ms. Crosse from Tulsa OK is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creating With Resonating Xylophones!

My students need xylophones, and this is a three-octave xylophone with mallets, a stand and a bag included. We do not have any xylophones currently, and our scholars need this to enhance creating multicultural music!

  • $552 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

We need a wooden xylophone with a stand and mallets to enhance the diversity in our scholars' learning daily and prepare them for college and beyond!

We want to make music with wooden xylophones that resonant throughout our whole school like they use in Africa!

We are learning about many different cultures and our hands-on learning of xylophones will assist scholars in learning multicultural history which will aid them in Math and Reading as they learn patterns and write lyrics!

We don't have any xylophones, and we don't have funding to purchase them! Thanks for your help and support!

My Project

Our musical scholars will be able to use this three-octave xylophone with a stand and mallets daily to create melodies and lyrics in music which will enhance Math and Reading skills! We use multicultural music at our school with rigorous, arts-infused curriculum, and this will assist in our academic music standards of creating and playing music.

Second and third graders will be able to write their own music to play and sing it!

Every scholar will enjoy playing on this resonating, wood xylophone and learning music, and this will assist our musical students for college and beyond! We do not have xylophones, and we appreciate your help for our school!
