The students I teach come from a diverse set of demographic backgrounds. They come with immensely diverse skill-sets, levels of motivation, and sky-high potential. I teach at a high-achieving school just miles away from Atlanta's city center, and my students have many opportunities for exposure to different arts and cultures.
My students are hungry for creative opportunities in the arts, and I want my classroom to be a hub to satisfy that hunger.
Regardless of their strengths or weaknesses, all students can connect through music in ways no other field of study can.
My students get lots of opportunities to read and play music on instruments and with their voices, but they don't always get the opportunity to be creative and take it home.
Using the tablets I have asked for, my students will be able to quickly create music, play back what they have composed, and save what they have created to work on at home.
Using technology in the classroom is a great way to apply what students have learned in a fun and engaging way. Through technology, I am hoping to light a fire in my students to enable them to be creative with music.
