My Students

"Orff is very fun!" A quote that this music teacher lives by on a daily basis.

I have some of the most creative and wonderful students that a music teacher could ask for!

I have over 300 students grades K-5. I see my K-1 students everyday for 20 minutes, and 2nd-5th grade students every other day for 40 minutes. My class sizes range anywhere from 20 at my smallest class to 26 students at my largest! I come from a high poverty school district and my school 100% free breakfast and lunch.

My Project

One of the most exciting activities for them in music is getting the opportunity to play instruments! The instruments we currently have in my classroom are very old. They tend to fall apart easily. The mallets are so old that some are being held together by tape. The rhythm sticks are chipping, and when the students play them they get splinters. Drums are a favorite of my students. The photo above shows the only drums that I have for my students to play. They are so old that they do not have a bright sound to them. My students have also never experienced drums that are close to their size (such as the tubano drums that I am requesting).

Donations to this project will help my students better enjoy music class experience.

With newer instruments, students won't have to worry about an instrument falling apart on them as they are playing. They will also get to experience playing on "big" drums.
