My students need various instruments, such as gourds and thumb pianos, to learn about music in various cultures.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are eager to practice and rehearse, every day, in class.
Our school is in a low income neighborhood, which is in close proximity to a military base; many of our students are from active and retired military families.
The music program is often overlooked, and supplies aren't always guaranteed. The music program provides a reason for my students to attend school every day and work hard in their classes. Many of my students begin their focus on playing an instrument as a 5th grader and progress through their middle and high school career. There is a great amount of dedication to the program, and they are proud of their work!
These materials will give the students at our elementary school a better chance at learning mulit-cultural songs. We love learning songs in other languages, and we enrich the lesson when we learn about the cultures of other countries.
We want to create movements and play instruments to add an extra layer to our multi-cultural lessons.
These instruments are needed to help us learn about music in other countries around the world. Included are cultural instruments that we currently do not have access to in our community, such as gourds, shakers, Gankogui and other percussion instruments from Latino and African cultures.
These lessons are going to be so much fun, and we will gain a better perspective about the world through these materials.
