Mr. Henson from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Motion & Music

My students need creative and active engagement that promotes physical activity and exercise through music. Boomwhackers are not only fun, but are a kinetic experience that gets kids moving to music!

My Students

The students at RMS are a diverse group of individuals that represent the Titans with pride. They are often excited and precocious young people that are striving for betterment of themselves and their families. By dedicating their days to scholastic achievement, they are improving not only in academia but in life skills. Our school is filled with students that are showing their teachers that, yes, "they can" on a daily basis. By representing themselves, their community, and our school, they are what makes RMS so awesome.

My Project

Cardio drumming is a creative collaboration of exercise and drumming. Our students will get an opportunity to move, exercise, and learn about rhythm with the use of yoga balls that are used as a quiet and soft drum in addition to alternative seating that promote core stability. Currently, we do not have enough mallets or Boomwhackers to utilize in this activity. We will be able to add to the excitement with the use of keyboard instruments that need these mallets.

The goal we are aiming for, is to inspire physical activity and creative interest in music.

Together, we can offer a new and exciting opportunity for success through "Motion & Music"!
