My Students

My students are eager to learn music! They have had very little experience with Orff Schulwerk (a music and movement approach to Music Education) and have really enjoyed the experiences I have introduced them to this semester.

My students deserve the best instruments and equipment available in order to experience music and movement in the Orff classroom.

I hope to provide them with everything they need to become successful musicians and exceptional people.

My Project

In an Orff Schulwerk classroom, students are encouraged to perform and create music using a variety of instruments and movement supplies. I believe my students deserve the best equipment so they can become successful musicians and lifelong learners.

By funding this project, my students will have the opportunity to play metallophones in different ranges (high to low).

This will allow them to experience the full sounds of the Orff instrumentarium, which will enhance their knowledge and experience with music.

My students are creative, talented, and eager to learn music! Thank you for helping make this goal possible!
