My Students

I teach General Music at a Title I elementary school in Middle Georgia. I have some great kids! My upper 3-5th-grade students will be playing the recorders, bucket drums, and participating in chorus. Every year when we begin a new year it seems that my students are more and more energetic in class.

My students work very hard and are eager to learn in music class.

They really like playing the drums and playing recorder. They also enjoy singing the National Anthem at a local university at their sporting events!

My Project

The makings of a band! My 4th and 5th-grade students are learning to play the guitar. We have also had a unit of keyboards. I would like to use the Little Kids Rock carts to help them create a band using guitars, drums, keyboards, and vocals. We have some guitars, we have some keyboards, now we just need some drums! I would like to get 2 drum sets to allow a few kids at a time to play. We practice once per week during our specials time. These drums would add so much to their experience of participating and playing in a band.
