Ms. van Bulck from N Charleston SC is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Making Musical Masters!

My students need musical instruments for our classroom. The size of our school does not allow our students to go to special area, so they are not exposed to a music curriculum.

My Students

Our school is Tittle I which, with 100% of our children receiving free lunch. Children come to school excited and eager to learn. A lot of times the school environment is the only stability that the children have in life. We have a diverse group of students, coming from all different backgrounds.

It is so important to provide these children with experiences that they wouldn't have at home.

Thanks for helping to give these children these experiences. We are always looking for new ways to make learning fun!

My Project

Providing students with musical education builds spatial-temporal skills, increases their IQ, helps with language development, makes the brain work harder, and it is FUN! The size of our school prevents the preschool program from getting to go to music classes. I would love to develop an in class music curriculum for my students. We need some instruments for the students to explore and experiment with. We want to teach smart, creative, and well rounded students. Providing them with an all inclusive arts curriculum will help us reach that goal. Children are naturally drawn to music, so we hope to give them an experience that they will love.
