My Students

Where to begin! I have an amazing group of students who love to learn and experience new things whenever presented. My students range from third graders all the way to sixth graders. We have a great mixture of learners and creators. The sky is not the limit for a lot of them.

My students love to create experiences, and I want to make sure that I can give them the right tools to do so.

Every class my students never cease to amaze/inspire me with their creativity. But, for many of my students, they may not be able to afford what other students may be able to do, and I would like to make sure that their experience in our class will continue to stoke that creative flame!

My Project

My students have been asking for keyboards for a long time. They have this drive to learn more and more about music. They've been taught to use recorders and ukuleles and for many of them, this is not enough.

This project would allow my students to challenge themselves and reach new heights in the world of music.

I really feel if we can continue to expand, our student experience if given the right materials and a chance to use them.

This keyboard project will hopefully grow into a full classroom of keyboards and allow all students a chance to play.
