My Students

My students are a very diverse group of children with one thing in common - they all attend an urban, public Montessori school. Eighty-one percent of the students qualify for free lunch and 88% of the students are a racial minority.

We follow the teachings of Maria Montessori to meet the needs of the whole child - physically, emotionally, cognitively, and spiritually through following and allowing the child to guide his or her learning.

I am fortunate to be in a school that sees music as an integral part of the child's development and encourages musical growth and expression.

My Project

I am in the process of rebuilding the music program at my school and am doing my best to listen to the desires of my students. They all want to learn to play the piano and enjoy using Boomwhackers. I am requesting materials, the keyboard, headphones, stand, and accessories, to be able to teach group piano lessons. We also need more Boomwhackers to play, arrange, and compose music in class.

Listening to my students is essential to their enjoyment and growth in music class.

These materials show them that I value their voices and am willing to work to meet their requests. Thank you so much for supporting this project!
