Hooray! This project is fully funded
I would like to first describe my demographics: I travel between two small schools and teach over 200 K-5th grade students. We are a rural community with a “Highest Poverty” rating. Even though we are not a wealthy community, my students still have a great deal of pride and energy. The kids are excited about music and love to actively engage in making music.
I am proud to say that my students LOVE coming to music class!
It makes my day to walk in the door and hear "YES...WE HAVE MUSIC TODAY!" I am constantly attacked by hugs and gratefully adorned with pictures and drawings about music.
I can truly say that my students are excited about music!
My students are really starting to embrace the idea of "Live" accompaniments and we are working to pull away from "Canned" music in our concerts.
We are a "Leader In Me" school and I asked my students what their hobbies were and we are working to create "Wildly Important Goals" (WIGS).
I was amazed at how many of them said they would love to learn to play the drum set.
What was even more amazing was that I currently have a few students that have drum sets at home...and they are interested in learning how to READ the music and play at our concerts.
If I had these tools in my classroom I could truly encourage them to learn to read the rhythms and compose their own ideas to share their talents with others during our many assemblies and in our concerts.
