Goin' Guitar

My students need five guitars.

I teach 540 general music students in grades 4-6 in South Carolina. While there is an extra-curricular string program, I would like to extend an opportunity for all of my students to learn to play some type of string instrument.

About 20% of my students do not have the financial resources to participate in the string program, as the school does not provide instruments. I have had many requests from my 4th-6th graders to learn to play the guitar. Currently, I am unable to meet their request. A "guitar lab" would allow me to meet the needs of underprivileged students as well as give ALL of my students a much-requested opportunity.

A starter set of guitars would provide the equipment for students to learn to play basic tablature notation as well as accompany classroom singing independently. I also plan to include the use of guitars in our annual performances and for composition activities.

By funding this project, your are providing an opportunity me to honor my student's requests for guitar instruction. I feel strongly that offering guitar will help develop an interest in music for a number of students who do not typically enjoy singing or other music-related activities. Thank you for broadening the musical horizons of my students!
