Need Instruments For Musical Magic

My students need instruments for our 4th-6th grade music room.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Do you remember the fun that you had learning to play instruments in elementary music? My 4th-6th grade students are finally getting their own music room. This is our 4th year as a Charter School and we've never had our own room. Now we need some instruments to teach our kiddos beat and rhythm!

We are a new charter school and we do not receive funds that most public schools get.

We have no instruments for the 4th-6th grade music program. The 4-6 program educates nearly 300 kids daily and has grown exponentially over our first three years. Help us build our program please!

My Project

Rhythm instruments are an essential part of teaching our kids self expression through music by encouraging them to play while emphasizing beat and rhythm. Studies have shown that students who do well in music also achieve in other academic areas. Music is an all inclusive subject, all kids, regardless of age and ability will benefit from a well rounded music program.

Music surrounds our lives everyday.

These gifts help us teach the kids to look for the music in their daily life and express themselves through music. A well rounded music program is an essential part of elementary school curriculum. Our program is in desperate need of instruments. We literally have none and have been traveling by bus to another location for music. We are very excited to finally have our own room and building and would love to fill it with a plethora of awesome instruments.
