My Students

Through String Orchestra, I teach my students tools and skills that will strength their school and everyday tasks. String Orchestra is an example of a community where students interact together and welcomes different ideas and lots of creativity. "Where words fails, music speaks"~Hans Christian Andersen

My students arrive each day into my classroom excited to learn and play.

We are a new string orchestra which is gaining students attention in the school community. The school's student population is very opinionated and has a strong attitude, but they have such amazing sense and passion for music. I cannot wait to grow our string program and incorporate many other students that will make a positive impact in their community. I am excited to search for our orchestra's resources as we grow.

My Project

Currently we have very limited resources and my students place their instruments in a shared classroom corner. With these string racks that we need, my students will be able to storage their instruments in an organized manner to avoid any damage on their instrument.

This project will make a huge impact in our classroom.

It will help students place their instrument in an organized manner to avoid any damages. This will help us extend the life of our school instruments and of the students who own an instrument as well!
