My Students

My students love to make music! Exploring melodies on the instruments is an integral part of our hands-on music curriculum.

Through playing easily accessible instruments like xylophones and drums, students develop their sense of pitch and rhythm, increasing their musical ability.

They learn teamwork and experience the power of being part of an ensemble.

You can "show and tell" a student about music, but when we allow them to become involved, that is when real learning begins and a love of music is born.

My Project

When students walk in to the music room, they are usually awestruck with all that they see. Because we are a new school, we are building our instrumentarium from the ground up.

Experiencing music is aural, kinetic, and visual.

Students need to explore all of their senses to fully appreciate all the music has to offer.

The students at our new school deserve the opportunity to have a complete musical experience and having these movement props and small percussion items will allow them to do just that and to become part of the music. The music room should be an experience that they will never forget!
