Mrs. Warbinton from Indianapolis IN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Mobile Music Teacher Recreated

My students need to experience music. When compared to my original project submitted, I've received a cart for traveling room to room. Now I can get a keyboard with batteries plus sticks and buckets for drumming!

My Students

My elementary is a high poverty (85%) school with high mobility (30%) rate. I will be without a classroom beginning in the fall and am in need of supplies to allow me to continue a quality Music Education program.

My students have the desire to learn and I want to keep teaching Music at the high standards my students and I have come to expect the past 28 years.

Items I am requesting will allow me to be a MMT (Mobile Music Teacher). Any assistance given will be greatly appreciated.

I needed to update and recreate this project since school begins July 26 and I have had some donors assist me in person so I can begin the first day of school with all the needed teaching supplies.

My Project

The keyboard and batteries will still allow me to accompany the students while singing. Although a cappella singing is also good for children, they need accompaniment to maintain pitch, beat, and stay together as an ensemble. The addition of rhythm sticks and buckets will allow me to branch out into bucket drumming and continue "instrument playing".

If you supported my first project attempt, I now have a cart and music storage device!

However, I needed to re-think my project because school begins July 26 and I want to be ready for teaching room to room. Thank you for allowing me to continue high quality music education even though I am without a classroom.
