My Students

I teach Elementary Music to classes Kindergarten through 5th grade. The students in my school come from varied backgrounds, but most of them share a love for music. They quickly learn to sing, dance, play instruments or whatever I throw at them.

Since we are a Title I school with a majority receiving free or reduced lunch, most share something else in common: working parents who don't have the resources or time to expose their children to extracurricular activities that enrich students' growth.

Things like music lessons or taking them to a live symphonic, dance, or theater performance. That's why participating in the Disney Musicals in Schools program is such an amazing opportunity for these students to see the possibilities of what the world has to offer.

That's where the school can make a real difference. We strive to introduce our kids to as many opportunities as possible, whether it is in the classroom or on stage, through performing in a play or learning to play piano on our keyboard lab, or by seeing live symphony, opera or theater presentations.

My Project

We have been slowly adding sound equipment to our performance space in our school cafetorium (the stage in the front of our cafeteria), since we started doing Disney shows last year. Since the amount of lead roles in The Lion King is very large, we are in need of more microphones for our April 22nd & 23rd performances.

These microphones will help us fulfill our goal of making the Disney Musicals in School program sustainable in our school for years to come.

Our school community has been very excited to see their kids performing something at such a high level and having fun at the same time. Thank you, donors & Disney, for making this possible.
