My Students

I teach music, band, and choir to students from K-8. Our youngest K-2 students are so excited to come to music! They love to sing, move their bodies, and especially play musical instruments. I love to see their smiling faces as they participate in our various musical activities.

"Are we going to play instruments?" they eagerly ask each time they come to music class.

We have a few students in wheelchairs and they always are included in every physical, musical activity we do. I know our students enjoy what they are learning in music and are eager for more instruments to play.

My Project

My kindergarten-2nd-grade music students have had to wait until the few instruments we have reached them, and then finally got a turn to play. This has affected the number of learning activities and lessons taught since it takes time for all the students to have a turn playing the instruments. Having more instruments will provide more time, more lessons and activities, and more joy with music!

My young students will individually and collectively learn about, feel, hear, experience, and appreciate playing rhythms and melodies on percussion and pitched instruments.

They will learn to play as a group, apply music principles, perform for others, and gain positive self-esteem in their accomplishments.
