My Students

My students are wonderful and very curious about different types of instruments. In the past, students have only been able to learn to play the recorder independently, but they would love the chance to play something else too.

We are a Title I school who loves to give our students as many positive educational experiences as we can!!!

My school has around 500 students and I teach them all. This project will benefit my 5th graders, which make up about 65 of that number. The students love to play instruments and I can't wait to tell them they won't have to take turns with these!

My Project

Right now, I have 13 ukuleles and would love to have a class set of 25 so that students do not have to share. The goal is to put a ukulele in every hand so students can learn independently. I will be using the instruments on a weekly basis when I see my 5th grade students. They will follow along with our Quavermusic.com curriculum ukulele unit and learn to play several different pitches and 3 different chords.

This will give them the tools they need to play accompaniments to a number of different songs.

My students already have the opportunity to learn to play the recorder, a woodwind instrument, and this would give them the chance to learn a new instrument family--strings!
