Mr. Conley from Columbus OH is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Making Music Accessible for Students!

My students need a piano with working keys and one that is touch sensitive to properly teach them dynamics and phrasing to help get them more excited and invested in their musical education!

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am hoping to influence them through music and give them the tools they need to achieve both in and out of the classroom. These students have compassion, natural talent, and dreams that they carry with them everyday. It is my wish that my students can have more resources in order to be successful and find creative and expressive outlets they can utilize for the rest of their lives.

My Project

A music class uses a piano almost every single day. Without a proper piano/keyboard, this greatly hinders a student's comprehension and overall experience of music. Our school would benefit immensely with the addition of a new piano through music rehearsal, performance, and classroom activities. This particular keyboard also has lesson mode to give the capability to teach individual students piano skills. Or students deserve a quality music education and that is hard to accomplish without the proper tools to experience music from. Please consider helping our classroom in our effort to grow musically and add a fulfilling experience to all involved. This piano could benefit the school for many years to come. Thank you for your time!
