Help me give my students new mallets to make beautiful music during our music class.
Albert Einstein said, "Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school." My hope is that what I am teaching my students will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
Music is one of those subjects that can take you on a lifelong journey.
We start in kindergarten by planting seeds to encourage a love a music. We keep watering those seeds throughout the rest of their education. We inspire them to continue their pursuit of music after they have graduated.
My students come from many different backgrounds. One third of my students receive free or reduced price lunch. In my classroom, I try to level the playing field so that all students feel like they are a part of a community. I strive to make them feel important, valued and honored. I use music to accomplish this goal.
Every child should have the opportunity to have a musical experience. One of the things we do in music class is play xylophones. The mallets we use to play the xylophones with have worn out or have broken.
Mallets are the musical equivalent of pencils.
Just like a pencil, mallets wear out over time. My students are currently using one mallet instead of two at a time. We are also using some mallets that aren't always a good fit for the instrument we are playing them with.
Most of the mallets cost $10.50. Eleven dollars goes a long way towards purchasing a single set of mallets. With your generosity, we can get enough mallets so that everyone can play properly.
