My Students

Our favorite time of year is coming up - Mallet Madness! We need more instruments so every student gets to join in the fun.

I teach over 300 pre-K through third graders who attend a Title I school in a small district in New Jersey.

While my many students' interests vary, none of them can deny the fun they have during our Mallet Madness unit, where they get to play mallet instruments, drums, and other percussion to their hearts' content.

My Project

I need an alto glockenspiel (xylophone-like mallet instrument) so that my students can have more opportunities to explore on pitched percussion. They'll use the glockenspiel to learn note reading, create soundscapes, practice rhythms, and more. This glockenspiel is high quality and durable, so it will sound great for years to come.

This addition to my classroom will give my students an opportunity to play instruments more.

During our mallet unit, students rotate around the classroom, so that they have the opportunity to play multiple instruments each class. This new glockenspiel will be added to the rotation, and that means less waiting and more playing!
