We need help unleashing our inner rockstars! Drums are the coolest instruments to a child and we currently only have a very few. We hope to continue to grow our resources to eventually have enough drums and percussion instruments to outfit a class of 30 students!
My students are a very diverse group of children with one thing in common: They all attend a Montessori K-8 inner-city public school.
In music class, they love anything that gets them moving--whether it is dancing or playing instruments. For many of these children, this music class is their only exposure to the arts, and they value the opportunity to participate and learn.
We are requesting one tubano drum and some hand drums. Right now there are 2-3 students per drum, based on the size of the drum, when ideally there would be one instrument per child to give the most amount of time possible for learning through performance.
Every child has a secret-or sometimes very open-desire to be famous.
These drums give every child the opportunity to shine in both the classroom and in performance. They are the beginning of building a large and successful drumming program in our building!
