My students need a bell tree to play in the Orff Ensemble.
My students attend a high poverty school and we have no budget for music. I want to buy some quality instruments for classroom use and for the after school Orff Ensemble.
My students attend a high poverty school and receive 100% free breakfast and lunch.
The rural town does not offer many opportunities for cultural events. We try to bring events (opera, concerts) to them whenever possible. In addition, our after school Orff Ensemble allows our students a chance to perform and have important musical experiences.
The bell tree is an important instrument for an Orff Ensemble. Each student will be at his/her unique level. I need instruments on which anyone can be successful. This includes non-rhythmic "color" instruments like the bell tree. The sound is improved and beginning musicians can have instant success.
My project is important because without the Orff Ensemble, my students do not have the opportunity to become familiar with the performance portion of their music.
Music is a performing art; if we do not play concerts, we will miss an important part of our curriculum. Young elementary school students like to perform; they just need a vehicle in which to do so.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
