My Students

My students are some of the most resilient children I've ever come across! We were in school 10 days before we were hit by hurricane Florence and were out a full FIVE weeks! Day one coming back they were full of smiles & hugs, ready to get down to work. They saw a community come together after a tragedy and are, themselves, always willing to step in and help. My students make me laugh and inspire me every day. They ARE why I teach.

My Project

These Casio Keyboards will be the perfect addition to an in school piano club where the kids will get 45 minute lessons from their own music teacher!

The majority of the students come from low income households and may never have an opportunity for private music lessons.

With more than just my one keyboard in the class, multiple students will be able to practice and be coached along at their own learning pace. At the end of the year, they will have have the opportunity to perform a recital for the rest of the school and parents.

Having a similar childhood background myself, wanting lessons but not being able to afford them, it excites me to no end to provide this opportunity for children now. Thank YOU for partnering with me by donating!!
