Ms. Adams’ Musical Wish

My students need one piano for our music classroom for me to accompany them.

My Students

Most of my students live in poverty every day. They are dealing with all sorts of trauma from separation with their families, incarceration, physical and mental abuse, death in the family, and many other terrible things.

In my eyes, school is a place for the students to escape and have the freedom to grow and learn and experience life as happy as it can and should be.

Many of my students enter the music classroom distraught, but always leave feeling happy. They love the different songs we sing, when I play my guitar, and even learning how to create music.

My students need a chance to explore, create, move, and feel welcome.

My Project

At the school where I work, I am the third or fourth music teacher within a year and a half. That means that the students have not had the stability that they need in the classroom and have not had the opportunity to create and perform music.

I hope to be a positive light in my student’s lives and they are all hoping we will obtain a piano soon.

I see so many of their faces light up, faces of students who walked in the room crying. Help me help them!!

If we have a piano in our classroom, I can easier accompany the students, but also teach them so sing at a faster pace. Right now, I have my own voice and my guitar from home. Each time I bring it out to play, the students seem mesmerized and love to hear instruments along with a voice.
