It's All About That Bass!

Help me give my students the gift of music! A bass bar completes the Orff instrument set in my classroom, and allows more students the opportunity to play.

My Students

We are an arts-based charter school with a focus on instrumental music. We have options for students to join our elementary band or orchestra, plus after school offerings for group instruction for flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, violin, viola, cello, percussion or piano. Music is a big focus for students at our school! It is truly a pleasure to work with students who love to express themselves through music. I am looking forward to having all the materials needed for a strong music offering in the music classroom!

My Project

Low sounding instruments provide the foundation for music. Bass bars will complete our set of Orff barred instruments that are used primarily by second grade to reach the four second grade Music Standards set by the state of Colorado: 1. Expression of Music: Using voice and instruments to expressively perform simple songs., 2. Creation of Music, creating musical phrases in the form of question and answer phrases, 3. Theory of Music, beginning notation and rhythmic patterns, and 4. Aesthetic Valuation of Music, respecting the contribution of others in our music projects. Our school is arts-based. Won't you help us to enhance the music program at our school?
