My Students

Musical, creative, inquisitive, energetic...these are all words that describe my students. They love to sing, move, play instruments, and learn in hands-on ways. They love to use drums, Orff instruments, and ukuleles in our music room, and they love to perform.

Around 25% of our students come from military families, and this brings them their own unique set of challenges.

We have also received new students from Puerto Rico due to hurricane Maria. I want to teach them a love for music that will last them their whole lives, wherever they may find themselves.

My Project

I am so excited about opening our piano lab this fall and beginning the adventure of teaching our students piano! One of the challenges with large classes will be differentiating instruction for students who are more advanced or struggle with piano. I'm requesting the Piano Maestro subscription to help with this.

Piano Maestro is a highly motivating and engaging tool that allows students to progress at their own individual levels through many songs and activities.

Their progress is saved and they can also choose to work at home if they have a piano. We will use the app through our class set of iPads, and students will have time each day for Piano Maestro work after our group lesson.

I'm also requesting 2 rolling storage carts to organize materials in the music room and piano lab. It will make class run more smoothly if the materials I plan to use are easily accessible to me. Finally, I am requesting two books: one is a guide to the Piano Maestro program, and the other is a series of wonderful percussion lessons by Artie Almeida. I expect both will be invaluable to me and my students!
