More Orff Please!

Help me give my students a soprano xylophone to give us more opportunity to use Orff in our classroom.

My Students

There is so much I can say about my students. They are all eager to learn and so very talented! Many of my students enter my music room ready to learn and excited about what we will discover next. I want to empower my students to dream and believe that they can achieve any dream and accomplish any goal.

My students do not have much but they do a lot with what they have.

I teach in a Title I school and most of my students receive free or reduced lunch. Most of my students only get to play musical instruments in my music room and have little formal music instruction.

My Project

My students are bright, talented, and eager to learn. As their music teacher, my number one goal is to give them the materials they need to create and explore the world of music.

We need more Orff instruments to keep creating and performing.

We love performing songs on our Orff xylophones, but as our class numbers have increased we need more xylophones so more students can play in class. Our hope is to add more and more xylophones where each student can have their own instrument while they are in our music classroom.
