Every teacher feels that their students are special and they are! As teachers, we are blessed to work with children that are our country's future, but that does not mean our students have it easy.
My students are from a very low income county in our state.
They face many of the challenges that low income kids face throughout the country. They have the advantage of living in a small town with teachers that truly care about them and want to see them succeed. They are great children and I want to see them be successful in all that they do.
I have a number of drummers that wait for their turn on one of our drums. Yet they have parts for smaller instruments that we do not have access to. If they are not busy, then they are looking for things to do.
This project is requesting some of the basic small percussion instruments that will help our drummers stay busy and help with their ability to read music.
I am requesting a number of instruments, like klave, sleigh bells, and maracas, that will help cover parts that we see normally in our music. I currently do not have these small instruments available for my middle school students. The cost of these add up quickly for such small instruments. Yet they are important parts in a lot of our music.
This project will also help my drummers in their music reading skills. It can be quite complicated to not only read these parts, but make sure they are played at the exact time to work with all the other drum parts. I am also requesting 2 of many of these instruments so that the students work on teamwork while playing music. These are just a few of the ways that this project will help my students.
