My Students

My students are a diverse group of children who enter the music room each week with joy and lots of energy! Each week we spend time together singing, dancing, playing instruments, creating, and reading. They eagerly come in the door each lesson ready to make music.

My students especially love to learn about different styles of music from around the world!

Because of the diversity of their backgrounds, many times students are able to draw connections to the music we explore from other countries. They love to share their own knowledge of songs, such as history of a song or alternate text they have sung at home with their families. I love when students take on the roll of teacher during our lessons!

My Project

My students love to be active musicians! We sing, dance, and play xylophones, recorders, and ukuleles all day long! We also love to drum and play unpitched percussion. We keep busy in the music classroom!

My students feel empowered as musicians when they are given a real instrument to play.

Their eyes, ears, and hands know the difference between real instruments and toys. I am looking to furnish my classroom with a set of 3 tunable tubano drums that my K-5th grade students can use in their lessons. These drums would be used to accompany stories and songs, and would be one of the main instruments to anchor percussion ensemble pieces. These are high quality drums with tunable drumheads, which would allow them to be maintained and played for years to come by the thousands of students that will come through my classroom.

Thank you for considering sponsoring our project and for your support of music education!
