My Students

My students are a diverse community of learners that are learning to collaborate as musicians in an urban environment. We are fortunate to be in a school that supports the arts as part of a balanced curriculum. However, many of my students come from low income families and purchasing instruments for students may not be their highest priority.

My students love to create, dance, and sing.

They enjoy moving and responding to music in their own unique ways. Given the tools they need, they will become audience members, performers, and composers.

My Project

Organization is something many of us take for granted. Being able to keep materials neat, organized, and accessible can make or break what we're doing.

For my special learners in the music room, organization makes or breaks their success story.

Giving my students access to binders will allow us to combine all of their piano materials into one place. This will allow them to access their materials without worrying that something has gone missing.

A new task board will allow my students to be able to see what tasks they need to complete. This will keep them organized and on task in our classroom. This will give them the chance to succeed in our classroom.
