My Students

I have the opportunity to teach music to numerous enthusiastic students each day. I want to expose them to as much as possible. Music is the vehicle that helps me shape these young minds.

The group of kids I have are very self-motivated, have a genuine love for music, and are eager to grow and learn.

The vast majority of my students are freshmen, so I will have this particular group for several more years. Our school has more than half the students receiving free or reduced lunch. With your support, we can take what we do to the next level!

My Project

There's a vast variety of choral music that has been composed throughout history. It is my goal as a choir teacher to expose my students to as much of it as possible. There are many choral genres. Much of the African, Central American, Asia, and pop influenced music calls for percussion.

We need this cajon drum so I can expand the variety of music we learn and perform.

The cajon is very versatile and can be utilized much like a drum set.

The addition of this cajon will take us to the next level. I will be able to more easily and teach my students about different cultures and the music associated with them.
