My Students

My students live in a lower SES area of Atlanta. They are starting a new year in a brand new location for their school. They work extremely hard to rise above their circumstances. They come to school every day eager to expand their knowledge, learn new information, show their teachers what they already know, and to have "lightbulb" moments every day.

Many of the students love learning something new about music every week.

They thrive on structure, rituals, and having fun while learning. Many of them have "lightbulb" moments at least once a week or once a month in my class. The students try to do their best even though it is difficult to practice at home. They work extremely hard every day and love to make connections from my class to things happening in their world outside my classroom. I am so lucky to have such a great opportunity to teach every student in this school and to touch their lives in a positive way.

My Project

This piano will help students understand many of the concepts taught in the classroom. It adds pivotal tonal experience for learning songs, identifying music, differentiating vocabulary and also to help them all become stronger singers and musicians.

The digital piano will give my students an experience that they do not have the opportunity to experience outside of the classroom.

The younger grades will sing along with the piano for their warm-up songs. The older grades will be able to identify music genres by listening to it and applying their music knowledge of the keyboard to the actual piano. Playing the digital piano in class will help the students to experience live music every day.
