My Students

My music classrooms are a place of budding musicians, laughter, and great camaraderie! This year, my students are looking forward to multiple performances with great musical experiences.

My students are 5th grade musicians in a rural Michigan elementary school.

They are excited to be in general music where they can learn about the beauty of music. My students enjoy the challenge of working together as a musical team to make something great! My students understand that music can bring people together.

My Project

Recorders are a wonderful music instrument that allows students to make music without much difficulty. They are instruments that require airflow, which gets them ready for band at the middle school.

Recorders will allow the students to experience the full general music curriculum in a new and dynamic way!

The music curriculum that we have has portions with recorders and we have been unable to utilize it to its full potential. We will also be able to have concerts using our recorders, which is something that the school has been missing for years. We are very excited to start making music with our recorders!
