Help me give my students a projector so that I can guide an entire class of students at once in their first music reading experience.
My students come from hard working families who are socioeconomically disadvantaged. A few of them are either currently homeless or have experienced homelessness in the past. However...
My students have such an eagerness to learn about music that you would never guess the kind of adversity many of them face in their home life.
They love music, they love coming to school, and they love learning when the material is presented in an interesting way. Most weeks I stay after school quite late, not because I have so much of my own work to finish, but because I have students coming to my room to spend extra time with the piano. I find myself working with them on the piano rather than finishing up my tasks. They are eager to learn as much about music as I have energy to teach them.
When children first learn to read, they usually track the words with their finger. When children learn to read music in a violin class, their hands are not free to track each music note they play. With a projector, I can display the music on a large screen for the students, and I can point to the notes as they play. This allows them to keep track of where they are in the music, making a strong connection between what they see on the page and what they need to do with the instrument.
If the whole class can follow the music projected onto a screen, they will soon develop the skills they need to read their own music placed in front of them on a music stand.
