I am a new elementary music teacher this year and I do not have very much to work with. I managed to buy one set of sound tubes called boom whackers for my students, but I have found that this is not enough. I do not have many instruments to play with so we are using the boom whacks in almost every class. Not everyone is getting a turn and my students are getting upset. I would really love to have some more sets so everyone gets a turn. I would also like to use the tubes for some of our Parent Teacher Oranization programs. The students do not usually think of music as being the fun exciting class and I am working very hard to change that. The students at my school are not exposed to a lot of culture, different types of music, or instruments. Having these boom whackers would help tremendously!
