My Students

My very talented musical theater students have been spend three years learning to act, sing and dance on stage which culminates in the eighth grade with a fully staged musical. We try to fund the production with ticket sales, bake sales, etc. These kids work very hard and have a great attitude toward performing.

Every year we begin the year with a fresh, new attitude and it would be great to have some fresh new supplies to match that attitude.

We are a Title I magnet school in Brooklyn. Thank you!

My Project

My students are a very unique and talented bunch!

They love to think outside the box, while establishing a great work ethic to make our performances unique and enjoyable for everyone.

The ukulele's will be used for ear training in classes and rehearsals and also used in our performances. They will add something new and exciting and help students get out of their comfort zone!

All the supplies will help start our year off with a fresh, new feel and attitude as well as establishing a feeling of order and discipline vital to the students becoming the best performers that they can be.
