My Students

Music goes beyond language. Over 90% of DES are minorities (87% Hispanic & 6% Black). I need your support in creating an Electronic Music Setup. Music Tech encourages creativity, critical thinking and supports STEAM which is 21st-century skills.

Your support will provide close the gap to transform the Music Room.

I have been able to gather a few iPads, microphones, keyboard and other pieces of gear. With a printer & an projector I will be able to create and document student's creations and take this project to a whole new level.

Thank you for your support!

My Project

All my students want to create music from pop to jazz, Latin to hip hop, they all share an immense amount of creativity. Over 1/3 of my students are English Language Learners, just like myself, and fortunately, music is a common language in my room.

The implementation of technology opens the door for Kinder to 8th grade to experience the drum set, world music instrument & even record their own songs.

I have been given the amazing opportunity to rebuild a music program from the ground up. With your help, instrumental music & music technology will make RCD Elementary an amazing music program
