My Students

My 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade music classes are so fun and full of energy! They love every thing about music class, especially instruments. They are so engaged and so eager to learn as soon as they come into class! In my classroom, I have so many different types of instruments. Many of them, however, are over 15 years old.

Because these instruments are so old and how often they are used, a lot of our classroom instruments need to be replaced.

Please help me get the instruments my students deserve.

My Project

My students love to learn how to play different instruments. They enjoy the individual sounds they make and using them to create sound stories and learn to read and interpret music. There is nothing better than hearing a class create music together with instruments.

The current instruments in our classroom are very old, and have begun to wear down and break as the students are playing them.

This makes teaching a new instrument to the students challenging. Not having enough for a class leave many students upset with not being able to play the same instrument. Please help bring new rhythm instruments to my students. They would enjoy being able to learn and create with instruments as a class.
