My Students

I get to see my Junior Kindergarten students through 3rd graders twice a week for 30 minutes. I'm fortunate to teach in a school and community that values music education.

My students love to sing and move, to shake and ring, to dance and giggle!

They are eager learners, engaged, motivated, creative, like to explore and discover new things, are excited to play instruments, and love to have fun in music. They make my job teaching music very enjoyable and exciting!

My Project

My students love their egg shakers, but right now we often don't have enough for every student and especially not for them to have two egg shakers at once. I would love the option for my students to be able to experience keeping a steady beat with both hands and not just with one.

Our current jingle bells are probably 20 years old and many of them have only one bell left on the wrist band.

I would be so excited to see the faces of my students light up when everybody gets a wrist jingle bell that has four bells on it! I love using them in folk dances, but of course also in our winter songs. Let's get ready to jingle all the way!
