My Students

Our school is part of a very large, urban school district with a very diverse student population. We are a dual language Spanish Immersion magnet, in which all students in the school receive half of their instruction in English and half of their instruction in Spanish.

Our building is rich with cultural diversity where 75% of students receive free or reduced price lunch.

The student body is composed of 73% Hispanic, 13.8% Black, 4.7% Multiracial, and 7.3% White students.

As the music teacher, I am fortunate to have every student (K-6) in my classroom throughout the week. Their enthusiasm and creativity in music class is what makes me excited about my job.

My Project

Active student engagement is central to any music classroom. It is always my goal to give my students as many opportunities to create and respond to music through a wide variety of mediums. Playing instruments and movement are central to achieving that goal.

With a drum in their hand, students will be able to COMBINE musical MOVEMENT with music CREATION and break into range of NEW POSSIBILITIES!

These drums lend themselves to collaboration with a partner, teamwork as a class, or individual exploration.

I believe that if we expect high standards of our students, they deserve to work with high quality materials. While there are many options for hand drums available on the market, these are the "gold standard" for elementary music classrooms. They are sturdy instruments that should last for many years, but they also produce a quality sound worthy of these young musicians.
