I love teaching music and I am dedicated to find the best materials for my students. My students are a diverse community made up of children from all around the world. I am convinced that I work at one of the best schools in the country! My students are full of courage and empathy and they work hard every day!
One-fourth of my students speak a different language and are working hard to learn to speak, read, and write in English.
This is no simple task.
Many of our families rely on us to provide basic supplies for their children. At my school about I am so happy that my district makes an amazing effort to offer music education to all students, and you could make a donation to the arts program in an elementary school.
A high quality learning environment is one that is safe, clean and organized! By purchasing recorder stands, more students will be able to study recorder in our school. I usually limit recorder to a few grade levels at a time, simply because I do not have the supplies to store and maintain them all in clean, safe way. With YOUR DONATION, I can provide many classes with a safe, clean place to store their recorder!
Research says to build on students' prior knowledge, and many students recognize music from their own cultures, as well as popular movies.
Music books that have music that is relevant to their experience will help my students feel motivated to learn. Many of these songs are challenging, and will help students get to the "next level" of music making.
