Integrating Reading in Music

My students need 15 books to supplement the music classroom, including "The Magic Flute ," "The Heroic Symphony," and "Pictures at an Exhibition."

My Students

Let's face it: kids like stories, kids like to be entertained, and most kids like to use their imaginations. Using children's literature and storytelling in the music classroom is such a fantastic way to encourage students.

The students at my school need to be shown possibilities.

Working at a Title I school gives me the chance to show, support, and teach an under-served population. These books would give students a chance to learn about other cultures, folk tales, and making music through stories.

My Project

I am requesting several books relating to music. I am the only music teacher in the building that services approximately nine hundred kids per week. My students will learn through books. These books will help students expand their imagination, create music through storytelling, and expand their reading repertoire.

"Music speaks what cannot be expressed!" My students always learn the importance of listening, making music, and being a part of an ensemble.

With your support, these books will not only excite them about music but also accelerate their reading skills. Thank you!
