My Students

My students will be entering a brand new school in August this year. Our school is a Chinese language immersion school so they will learn Mandarin and English at school.

They will learn Chinese song and an English song in my music class; they would like to singing,dancing,playing different instruments.

They will be encouraged to be curious, creative, active. I will encourage them to come to my class, be active, engaged, and ready to try new things. I hope they will always be passionate about music.

My Project

Students like to try new things and having fun in class. With these materials they can choose what they like, playing xylophone or ukulele, or using the boomwhackers in the "little band".

For the first year of our brand new school, we do not have many instruments set up yet because we are facing some financial challenges.

It is very important to us that provide a good learning musical environment for students.

I will be very excited to see how much they love those cool instruments! It would promote an engaging classroom experience. Thanks so much for this program to providing a chance for a better education!
