Mrs. Corbin from New Haven CT is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

New Music Program!

My students need some folders, dry erase pens, wipe off charts, and a wall organizer for our new choir and music classroom.

My Students

Our academy is a group of wonderful individuals. They have had limited experiences with music and I would like to start the school year off on the right foot.

Our music room has the bare essentials and I would love to start gathering some musical instruments, and decorations to engage the students and show them how important music is to their education.

65% of our students come from the inner city and the other 35% are from the surrounding suburban communities. Combining these different types of students lends to an exciting, and interesting classroom. One of those common denominators is MUSIC! Let's help these students have a great music experience.

My Project

Our Academy hasn't had a choir. This year this will all change. We would like to start a mixed grade high school choir. We will be focusing on some choir basics, as well as prepare for a few performances over the semesters. We will also have some general music instruction, and some piano classes.

I want to make this choir fun, yet challenging for my students.

I would love for them to have the folders and music staff white erase boards to help with their learning.

Let's get start this new music program off with some materials needed to engage and make learning music fun.
