My students are shining stars with big personalities! We are a neighborhood school in a small urban community. Many students don't have access to music lessons outside of school. I try to expose them to as much as I can each year so that they will be ready for middle school music and have a lifelong love of music!
My students love performing, dancing, singing, and showing their unique style.
I love that music can reach students who may otherwise struggle in school. I want them to express their creative sides..and boy are they creative!
Last year, we were so lucky to get keyboards from generous donors like you. Sometimes, students benefit from working together and we want to continue to collaborate through this project.
This project will benefit all of the students at my school over time and for years to come!
Every 3rd grader learns recorder in my music class, but not all students can afford to buy their own. This year, I want to provide a recorder for each student and save parents and students the stress of purchasing. We all have the right to learn and music should be fun and engaging.
All students should have instruments for learning music!
This year, I want my keyboard students to be in charge of their own progress without distractions from other sounds. Students will work through keyboard tutorials. Students will work in pairs and progress through pieces together. Headphone splitters will allow them to hear each other, but not the other 18 students!
These instruments will allow students to grow in their music reading skills and can be made progressively more challenging for each student's needs.
