Mr. Pearsall from Washington DC is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students clarinets to help advance music in america and expand their musical knowledge.
As an educator, there are several things that I love about the students of my school. The students at the school have a large amount of energy that they exude throughout the school day. I believe expressing themselves using music will help and give students another outlet to release any extra energy or emotions.
Several of the students have shown interest in music but have expressed that they'd be more interested in music if they had instruments to play.
Students weren't always aware of instruments that are in the world and can be played. Once they were introduced to different videos and pictures of the instruments they could possibly play, the students started naming which instruments they'd play if available.
The students are special because they have created a tenacious bond among themselves that you don't typically see in kids their age. The bond has been created between the students from their daily living, however, the bond can only get stronger as the young students learn to play different musical instruments together.
The materials that can be gained from this project can help the students in many ways. Students will have the opportunity to work with different instruments that they have never even seen in person. Several students have heard instruments within a concert band, but never had the opportunity to put the sound of an instrument with the physical form of the instrument.
Having instruments such as the clarinet to play will give the students along with the entire school a new sense of enthusiasm and moral to learn more about music.
Many of my students have complained about not having instruments to play. They feel as though there is no point in learning music without an instrument that will help them excel. Therefore having instruments like a clarinet, trumpet, baritone and flute to play will allow the students to grow musically by practicing music scales, correct emboucher/aperchure placement, and note quality.
Many of the school's students learn through hands on activities. Instruments like the clarinet in the classroom will help keep students engaged. The students feel as though people outside of the school don't believe in their abilities to be great. Instruments will give the students of this young generation something to believe in for themselves, as well as give them hope that people outside the school believe in them as well.
In conclusion, students have expressed wanting to learn music. However, students feel as though with their lack of experience knowing instruments, they cant apply themselves in the classroom. Instruments will heighten moral within the students to make them want to get more involved in the classroom. Along with the moral, students will have something to believe in as far as their education is concerned. There consist of several reasons as to how the materials can make a difference.
