My Students

I am a first year teacher and I am excited to teach students from grades K-8th in general music. My school is small, but this project will benefit all 120 students in the entire school building. Although I am new, I can already tell that this school is very community driven. There is a high open enrollment percentage of students because the school has such a great reputation in the community and parents want their children to attend this school!

My students LOVE to play on instruments!

They light up when they walk in the room to see instruments out for them to play!

My Project

My students love to play instruments. They love to jam and play and are so focused and careful when we use instruments. My school is small and I have been slowly trying to add on new instruments, with the goal of having one Orff instrument per child. This soprano xylophone will put us one step closer to realizing this dream!

My students and I are looking forward to one day having an Orff ensemble and a drumming ensemble.

They like to use instruments to illustrate books and to create their own compositions. This instrument will help make these dreams happen for students for the next decades! Thank you for considering supporting this project!
