My Students

My students come into my music classroom once a week full of energy, excitement, and a passion for music. Unfortunately, they face many struggles in their attempt to achieve academically. Many are impoverished, and/or raised by someone other than their parents, and reside in a dangerous community full of crime, gangs, drugs, and violence. Many don't have their most basic physical and emotional needs met.

The two free meals and one snack my students receive each day at school may be all they eat that day.

Many have parents who are incarcerated or addicted to drugs/alcohol or are mentally unable to provide for the needs of their child. However, many of them do succeed! I am so proud of each one when they reach and surpass their academic goals!

My Project

These 4 keyboards would be a huge blessing for my Marvelous Master Mini Musicians. We have started group piano lessons with third, fourth, and fifth grade students and we currently only have 6 functioning keyboards so 4 more would make a big difference in the number of students having to share a keyboard. Curriculum has been purchased for the younger Marvelous Master Mini Musicians as well as the PreK, Kinders, First, and Second Graders. In the Spring, the students will show off the skills they have learned at a formal end of year formal piano recital. My students are so excited to be learning piano in the spring so these keyboards would truly be appreciated by them.
