My Students

Come on in! Let's sing, play, move and groove! Throw away your cares, your worries and for the next 40 minutes, let's have fun! Let's MAKE MUSIC! Welcome to my music room. Every day it is filled with sound!

I find a way to make my music class enjoyable and attainable for every student on every level.

That's why music is special - it can reach out and have an affect on anyone who experiences it. My day is filled with students from age 3 to age 11. In the rural area in which we live, I teach students who come from many backgrounds. Some are athletes who spend their evenings at the ball field, and others are farmers who spend their extra time raising their livestock. Some like to fish, hunt, dance, and cheer. When we all get together in music class though, I see boys and girls who are eager to experience music in many ways in a setting where they are comfortable to try new things; maybe even step out of their comfort zone to express themselves musically.

My Project

Students need a place in every classroom that is their "spot"; their one place that they know is there everytime, just for them. This routine not only helps all students feel safe and secure but helps the music teacher stay organized. Music lessons will run smoother when students have a specific place to come to in the music room.

My students need a new, larger rug in the music room so that we can all sit together comfortably and so that each student has a "place".

The rug we currently use is very small so it's impossible to have assigned seats for students and have adequate room to move around. Students in younger grades need assigned seats at this age so that they have a set routine. Imagine a world with no arguing about who is going to sit next to who! This, unfortunately, has been a daily problem in my room.

A new, larger rug would give us so many seating options while listening to stories or playing singing games. Students would be comfortable and will have a more enjoyable experience!
