My Students

I teach in a school where a high number of students receive free or reduced lunch since most of them come from low income families. We are a strong community where teachers, administrators, and staff know all of the children and their families. We communicate with parents on a daily basis and most of the students have been in the same class since they were in Pre-K.

My students are very creative, eager to discover the music world and desperate to learn how to play the keyboard!

They enjoy hands-on assignments that provide new learning experiences for them. I am fortunate to teach a group of learners that are happy and ready to learn each day!

My Project

All languages are typically best acquired at an early age and music is no the exception. Unfortunately, few of my students have access to the many benefits of private piano lessons.

These Casio CTK-2550 PPK 61-Key Premium Keyboard Pack with Stand, Headphones & Power Supply, the Samson SR350 Closed Back Over-Ear Stereo Headphones, and the Hosa YPP-118 1/4 inch TRS to Dual 1/4 inch TRSF Y Cables will help us to complete a lab that will positively impact the students at School.

My students will not only improve their academic level but also their attention skills. Studying music and learning to play has been neurologically proven to strengthen cognitive, literacy, math, memory, listening, fine motor and abstract skills, among others. Our digital society is destroying attention skills in children and adults and developing piano and music literacy skills help students to improve all kinds of learning.
