Music Students Need Instruments

Help me give my students more instruments to play and a speaker for me to play practice tracks for their spring performance!

My Students

My students are homeschooled but come to our learning center for enrichment and extracurricular classes. I am the music facilitator and teach both vocal and instrumental classes. Many of my students don’t have their own instruments, specifically for the ukulele class. Although I have donated some of my own for the time being, and the center has recently acquired five ukuleles, we still do not have enough for al students who take my class. It would be great to offer the class and not have our students need to buy their own instrument out of pocket. Anything and everything helps!

I believe that education in the arts is extremely critical and I would like to make music accessible to any students who are interested in taking my classes, not just those with the resources.

My Project

As of now, my ukulele class is only offered for students who can provide their own instrument. I feel that my class is not accessible to lower-income students who want to explore music. I believe that music should be free to anyone and a vital part of learning. If we were to obtain five more ukuleles, we would have enough ukuleles for more than half of the students per class. Ultimately, I’d like to have enough for a full class, but baby steps are important. If you have a passion for arts education and feel the same way about education accessibility, your support would be priceless!
