My Students

My students have unique learning needs and learn and process new information in many different ways. One aspect of our learning day, that brings all of my students together, is music. Music is a powerful, engaging, and creative time that my students thrive on. Having the opportunity for a music therapist to work with my students would be a wonderful opportunity for my students to express themselves, to be engaged, and to create.

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”--Plato.

My students range from 3-5 years old. They have delays in 2 or more areas (cognition, motor, communication, social/emotional, and or functional/adaptive) of their development, however, this does not define who they are or limit their learning capacity. My students are loving, caring, and eager to learn and try new things. I am blessed to be their teacher and couldn’t ask for a better group of learners.

The mission of my school is to provide a quality, comprehensive, arts-infused education. Having music therapists come into the ECSE classroom at my school, will provide students and staff the opportunity to bring music and creativity to our youngest learners.

My Project

A teaching artist will come into our classroom once a week throughout the school year to provide music therapy lessons to our students. Teaching artists are board certified and have experience working with young children with special and unique learning needs. Staff and students will be fully engaged during this special opportunity to learn, create and experience music in different ways.

Donations to this project will help fund Learning Through Music groups for 15 weeks in our classroom.

During Learning Through Music, students will learn academic and arts concepts that are embedded into the music activities (instrument play, singing, finger plays, sensory/relaxation, and movement). The students will also have the opportunity to transfer skills practiced and learned during music group to the classroom as the teacher and special education aides will also participate in the learning.
