My Students

"People who make music together cannot be enemies, at least while the music lasts."-Paul Hindemith This quote perfectly describes the environment in our elementary classroom. It is a safe environment where we work together as a team to accomplish a common goal, making music together.

Eden Elementary is a small rural school of a little over one-hundred students.

Most of these students will attend all twelve years of school together. In our school, being in band is something many of my kids look forward to. Music class is twice a week for the elementary students and they are so excited when they come in to class. Music class is a safe environment for them to express themselves that many of them look forward to all week long. In the past elementary music was not made a priority by the previous band directors. I am attempting to change that by working to acquire as many resources as I can for my students. At the beginning of the year the only items in the room were a few rhythm sticks. Thanks to Donors Choose our classroom has received new instruments as well as a rainbow carpet.

My Project

At the beginning of the year, I realized I had no writing surfaces for my students. Thanks to the generosity of one of my co-workers I have borrowed some dry-erase lapboards from the third grade classroom. Having these lapboards has opened my eyes to the possibilities of having individual music staff lapboards for each students. All students could be actively participating together to notate music. Right now, I typically draw a music staff on the dry-erase board at the front of the classroom and students come up to the front to participate. This process takes quite a bit of time, so having an individual music staff in front of them will allow the students to do so much more. Musical notation and rhythmic identification improves each student's academic lives by increasing their mathematical and critical thinking skills. Through rhythmic identification, my first graders are already beginning to add fractions together.

With your generous support of this project, more students will be able to actively participate in music notation as a classroom.

This will help increase our school's music literacy at a young age, ultimately transforming our music program in the future. I'll also be able to return the lapboards to the third grade classroom. :) Thank you for your consideration of this project!
