My Students

My students love hands on participation in my music and art class. They are always wanting to try new instruments and practice rhythm techniques to make them better players. Currently we use rhythm sticks and buckets to accomplish this. Real drums would be a huge advantage. They would be able to experience playing on real instruments as opposed to using their imaginations. During my class, students are able to take a short academic break for 45 minute and become refreshed for the rest of their academic day. They are able to release stress through playing instruments, singing songs, creating music and art to share with their world. Since the whole school comes to see me, I am able to impact the entire school. What a change we will be able to make with ALL my precious students if we are blessed with these much needed materials.

My Project

Drumming is a great way to reach every student in my Fine Arts classroom! Students can use the drums and rhythm instruments to practice rhythm, release stress, have fun, compose new songs and rhythms, play music, and have fun! Since the whole student body has fine arts, funding a project like mine can change an ENTIRE school! I want students to be able to have a bright spot in their day where they come to learn, let loose, explore, refresh, learn about great character traits, learn teamwork, all while exploring music and art. I truly believe that my students are able to learn all of those things in more just through Fine Arts. These materials would be used for programs for all grades as well as everyday music class experiences so that all my students have a chance to explore the joys of music.
