My students need 15 pairs of steel drum mallets so we can prepare for the upcoming spring concert.
Long gone are the days of singing from textbooks while the music teacher pounds away at the piano. At our school, we are arts infused with a focus on performance for ALL students!
My students attend a school that uses a rigorous arts infused curriculum to prepare students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade for college.
Therefore music is an important part of this formula. This year there is a strong emphasis on performance because it provides students with the opportunity to shared musical skills and talents with the school community.
Your donation of steel drum mallets will mean that my students have the equipment necessary to create and perform Caribbean music in the upcoming spring concert. Students will also increase their background knowledge as they learn about the history of the steel drums and countries in the Caribbean.
The act of creating and sharing music with the school community will develop students' musical selves and result in many proud moments that students will remember for many years to come.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
