My Students

I am writing this proposal for my high school students who participate in our music program. Our high school serves a large, urban area and has a high percentage of students from low-income homes. Our student body is culturally diverse and provides our school community an opportunity to experience music and customs from many cultures as we interact every day. Creating and encouraging music learning opportunities for our diverse student population promotes inclusion and diversity in our educational programs.

Many of my students do not have the opportunity to explore and experience high-quality music instruction outside of the school setting.

It is exciting to see my students grow in their knowledge and excitement of music. Many of our students will continue their participation in the music program for three or four years during high school.

My Project

We are asking for 5 boxes of photo paper for our Canon SELPHY Square QX10 wireless photo printer. My students just came back to school under a hybrid learning schedule after suffering through more than a year of distance learning.

We need to build a learning environment where my students are comfortable working and learning with other students in the classroom.

The Canon Selphy Square allows students to print photos directly from their iPhone or Android device. We are interested in creating a collogue of photos of our music classes working and interacting together in the classroom setting. My music students will reach for higher levels of success in music if they are comfortable learning with those around them. These kinds of student interactions break down barriers that limit creativity and high level participation in the music performance classroom. My students love to see pictures of great learning taking place in class.
