My Students

Our school is located in Harlem and has over 450 students that range from 3rd grade-8th grade. As their music teacher, I would love to provide them a quality music education, but do not have funds to purchase any musical instruments, storage lockers, and music accessories; reeds, mouthpieces, stands, etc. My goal is to create a strong music program for our students to equip them with the knowledge and skills to further their music talents. With a strong music program, our students will be able to apply to music high schools and eventually into strong music conservatories throughout the nation. Thank you for considering our students in Harlem!

My Project

Our students in Harlem have such incredible music talent! As a new music teacher in Harlem, I want to share my knowledge and passion for music, but we require several instruments and supplies to help build our music program. Some of these items include guitars and boomwhackers. I know that with their talent, we will achieve our goal! So far, we have learned several scales, four songs, and want to continue growing our music skills. I am hoping that with our new music instruments, the trumpets in this project, our Harlem students will be able to express their musical talents and creativity.
