My Students

My students are wonderful! I teach 5th grade general music, and also choir for grades 6-8. I have about 60 choir students, and about 100 5th grade general music students.

My students will be meeting this year for in-person classes, and because singing is something that needs extra precautions taken during covid, we will likely be singing for most of our classes outside, a distance apart, and with masks.

My Project

Our 6th, 7th, and 8th choirs, as well as 5th grade general music classes, will be meeting in person this year. To keep the students safe, we will meet sometimes outdoors (when the weather allows) and sometimes in a gym in the neighboring building. We will sing spread apart and with masks to keep everyone safe. In order for this to work, we need a portable, quality keyboard that can be easily transported to wherever class is meeting that day. Help us to be able to make beautiful music together at difficult time!
