My Students

I teach over 300 students from a growing rural community. My students are in kindergarten through the 6th grade. I teach general music and general art to the kindergarten through 5th grade students, chorus to 3rd-6th grade students, and band to 5th-6th grade students. Our school music department is growing each year and the students are eager to learn and grow in the arts.

My students are creative and inspiring!

They have unique and interesting personalities that contribute to each lesson and performance. They love to express their ideas and creativity in my class. They inspire me to learn and grow as a teacher so that I can enhance their arts education.

My Project

I am requesting music posture chairs for my students. Music posture chairs will enhance my students' education by promoting healthy posture and correct breath support for singing, playing instruments, and performing. Currently, my students do not have appropriate chairs for music. Our chairs cause them to slouch when singing and playing instruments. This affects their tone, breath support, comfort, and ability to focus on the lesson. Donations to my project will allow my students to sit comfortably so they can focus and learn more about music skills. My students are eager to learn music and this project will allow them this opportunity. In addition, these chairs will be used for their music performances several times each school year.
