My Students

I am a music teacher at a Title One public school. For more than ten years of teaching music at this school, I was a traveling music teacher. There were many limitations when moving from room to room, teaching music to students of different grades. My dream of having a music room has come true. The school has transformed a regular classroom into a Music Classroom! Students will now have a room to explore when they enter the one and only music classroom in the school.

A well-rounded music education needs a pleasant learning environment, tools and equipment.

If you want education to be powerful, the learning environment matters. All the activities students do will not only nurture a positive learning attitude, but will also stimulate their brains.

One of the ways of learning is through visual and hands-on interaction. Students will excel in their learning through the use of learning tools.

My Project

We are lucky to have lots of piano keyboards, but no batteries to make them go! We have twenty, small keyboards, but only enough space from our outlets to power eight at a time. It also means that the kids are huddled around an outlet instead of being able to move around the classroom and take advantage of our whole space. Each keyboard needs six batteries. Please help make more keyboards functional so more kids can learn to play at the same time!

Also, we do not have enough cleaning supplies and tissues for the kids.

Please help to fund Clorox wipes and tissues to keep the kids healthy and the germs at bay while learning the keyboard!
