My Students

I am the music teacher to an entire school district's 3 and 4 year old Pre-K students. Every week, over 600 learners will come through my door, eager to try out new things and explore music in new ways. My students are curious, imaginative and loving little people who sing and create with me every week. They are both English speaking and Spanish speaking bilingual students in a rapidly growing area of Texas. I am in a Title I district, which means many of my students lack the advantages of more prosperous areas of town. As a Pre-K teacher, my job is to make their musical beginnings as rich and meaningful as possible before sending them off to kindergarten.

My Project

My music room was built for K-5 students, not Pre-K. I have modified by blocking off-limits instruments and materials with giant risers, but this solution is cumbersome. I have to drag heavy furniture back and forth every time I pull out equipment.

I need storage that puts things out of reach of students, so the focus stays on the instruments for the day's lesson.

Slatwall panels and rotating shelves solve this issue.

Short shelving on wheels are easy to move and can be turned when not in use, and slat wall turns blank wall space instantly into storage, with hooks to hold equipment. It looks inviting, but will be out of reach when needed.
