My Students

I have the privilege to teach every student in the school. They come to music class in a rotation every 3 days. I get to see students from Kindergarten to 5th grade. They are wonderful students with great excitement for music. These students have great persistence and drive, and it is a great honor to be their teacher.

We are a charter school and we have students from all ages, backgrounds, diversity, and learning styles.

It is a wonderful learning community with great kids.

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the quality of music that I am able to give my students. My students inspire me every day, and I want to give them the best quality of music literature that I can!

With these new books, my students will be able to choose and play music that is of great quality and relevant to their life.

The best way to increase music literacy and musical skill is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in music making and reading. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in singing and creating with our Boomwhackers, and this project will only help enrich their experiences!
