My students need barred orff instruments for students in grade K-8. This purchase will teach melody, contour, dynamics, soundscapes, timbre, composition, and more!
This is the first year that our school will have a music program! Our students deserve a quality music education that is competitive with other schools and supportive of our core knowledge curriculum. We need you. "Tell me I forget, show me I remember, involve me I understand." -Carl Orff
We are a tuition-free, independent public school chartered by the State of North Carolina.
Our school was founded on the need for a true choice in education and the need for a college-preparatory K-12 school in Cleveland County. Our educational philosophy is based on the three R’s – Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships. Rigorous coursework, relevant learning activities, and meaningful relationships with teachers and other staff members are all necessary to ensure that every student is successful and prepared for college. This is a bold proposition, but one that is necessary to meet the educational needs of students in a 21st-century society. The students that attend the school come from a variety of backgrounds, but are united in a clear goal- to be college ready and to become a positive member of his or her community.
All of the students at our school will benefit from your donation. Kindergarten and first grade will create soundscapes and words on steady beat accompaniments. Second and third-grade students will begin to study the C scale, solfege, and compose short melodic compositions. Fourth and fifth-grade students will be able to create harmonies, blues progressions, melodic compositions, and become familiar with notes on the staff. This familiarity with notation will enhance the middle school band program and their ability to perform on a wind, brass, or percussive instrument. We need to lay the groundwork where the students are not only studying the music of the Core Knowledge Curriculum, but creating, composing, and respecting the creative process behind the musical choices that support their educational ventures.
Your donations are imperative to creating a worthwhile musical experience for our students that can be age appropriate, stimulating, and supportive of cross-curriculum activities.
The Orff instruments give our students a voice and allow students of all abilities the opportunity to experiment with sound in a whole new way and prepare our students for a life-long love of learning.
