My Students

"The arts enrich communities and employees, and also stimulates the kind of intellectual curiosity our company needs to stay competitive.” (Source: Norma R. Augustine, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Martin Marietta Corporation.)

The children in my school district are curious and excited.

When my students received a tambourine and a triangle (from a previous project), they were ecstatic. They all wanted to try these new percussion instruments. My students need more materials (instruments and other music supplies) to continue their sense of curiosity. My students are definitely benefiting from their music education experience. Throughout the past few months, my students have been invested in class, encouraging one another in and outside of the classroom, and challenging themselves and others daily. I am always so proud of my kids. They overcome so many challenges and are doing miraculous things.

My Project

This equipment is going to allow my students the ability to be even more creative. The equipment consists of a set of maracas, a couple of tuners, a wood block set (for percussion), a couple of music stands, and some much needed mallets for the donated bell set we just received. These materials will help my students be more detail-oriented and they will be able to contribute more to the music making. They will also get the opportunity to play more of the written parts in their music that they could not play before because of the lack of materials. These materials are needed to continue their curiosity, excitement, and desire for learning in my classroom!

Continuous forward motion in our children's education is crucial with higher education becoming more competitive and with the dwindling job market still looming over our heads.

Students in low income areas do not receive the same resources the other children do. You would not know that my children are from an impoverished area. They are excited about music and always ask for more things to work on. They deserve more than what they are getting. Please help us!
