Mrs. Chambless from Saint Johns FL is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Percussive Sounds Make Everything More Interesting!

Help me give my students the auxiliary percussion instruments such as a gong that will make their music and their literature come alive!

My Students

My students love to make music! Exploring melodies on the instruments is an integral part of our hands-on music curriculum.

Through playing easily accessible instruments like xylophones and drums, students develop their sense of pitch and rhythm, increasing their musical ability.

They learn teamwork and experience the power of being part of an ensemble.

You can "show and tell" a student about music, but when we allow them to become involved, that is when real learning begins and a love of music is born.

My Project

When my students come to the music room, they can hardly wait to see what we do while they are there on their day. Will we sing, dance, or play?

In every class we create beautiful music together and explore ways to bring our stories and music to life.

The instruments that we are requesting will help us dramatize our books and make memories that will last a lifetime! Having a cabasa, flex atone, wind chimes, and ocean drum will add a little "spice" to the small percussion that we have.

It is true that when we hear about something, we might forget; when we see something, we might remember; but when we experience something, we are not likely to forget. Please help my students to not forget!
