My Students

Imagine listening to your favorite song. You might turn up the volume, sing along or tap your toes. We want to fill the classroom with music so the children may experience the sounds that speak to their souls.

My school serves children from pre-k through fifth grade.

It is located in one of the most ethnically diverse places in the WORLD. Though they come from different backgrounds, my students all love to sing, dance, and listen to music. They really love to play musical instruments! When children are making music, they benefit socially, emotionally, mentally, and physically.

My Project

All the students in our kindergarten, first and second grades will be learning to play the piano. Through a generous grant, we received new piano keyboards for our youngest students to study music. The only thing we need to make our piano lab complete is a Bluetooth speaker. We'll use it to listen to, sing, dance, and play all our new repertoire.

Your donation will fill the classroom with music...literally!

More than three hundred students come to the music classroom each week. Every time they come to music class, they'll enjoy the clear, rich tones from our Bluetooth speaker.
