Make a Joyful Noise: Recorders for Everyone

My students need 34 soprano recorders to meet 5th grade standards in music.

My Students

Do you remember what it was like not to able to easily express yourself as a child? My students will appreciate finding a new voice through music, a language in which any child can share his or her feelings.

My students come from all over Los Angeles county.

They represent a variety of ethnicities, cultures, and languages. These 9-10 year olds have come together in a school focused on meeting the needs of gifted and high ability children. They enjoy working collaboratively in fluid, small group settings.

My Project

When the children receive a classroom set of recorders, they will learn how to read musical notation to play a variety of songs. They will also create their own compositions using an instrument particularly suited to children: lightweight, portable, and user-friendly.

With funding an ever-increasing concern in public education today, many schools face the decision of which programs to cut and which to continue.

Through your generous donation to fund an in-classroom music program, you will enrich the experiences of these 5th graders in the arts.
