My Students

I never though schools would close for the year when COVID-19 shut down classes. While my students have been provided district Chromebooks and are completing online worksheets, my highly technical classroom has decreased to the size of my cell phone. They deserve better than worksheets from me. They are reaching out for assurance, comfort, and (most importantly) academic structure.

My students are reaching out to me and I'm ready to reach back!

Completing online worksheets is not an ideal education. Until the shutdown, music classes were interactive, energetic, and full of sound. Since I only have my cell phone at home, classes are completed via email or text and are totally silent. Students are scared, confused, and feeling alone yet their main concern has been keeping up with their school work. I need the technology to host virtual classes so we can sing, play, and learn together. This is the education they deserve.

My Project

I accept the challenge of designing music classes online. I can picture elementary classes singing, groups learning rhythms with body percussion, musical games played by sharing my screen. I need the technology to achieve this goal.

This project will help my students receive face to face music lessons.

These materials will provide me with the technology needed for interactive class lessons. Students would be able to receive ukulele and recorder lessons, band sectionals, and class choir sing-a-longs. From my home studio, I would be able to host group music classes or one on one private instrumental lessons via virtual meetings.
