Help me give my students recorders to learn about pitch and melodic patterns!
My students live in Silicon Valley, but do not have access to the same benefits students of higher economic status receive. Most of my students are bilingual and come from supportive homes that struggle financially. Funding has been cut in more than 80 percent of U.S. school districts since 2008. As recent as 2009, music programs were being cut from schools due to drastic budget cuts within the State of California's budget. Almost all of the students have never had any kind of music class before coming to my classroom.
My students are amazing and resilient individuals who inspire me every day to bring my best for them.
Tim Lauztenheiser says it best, “There is no substitute or replacement for music making as it relates to positive growth and development of the human mind, body, and spirit. Participation in band avails the musician to the infinite journey of creative expression connecting to a language (music) that is understood, communicated, and appreciated by all of mankind around the globe. More importantly, music is a place for everyone.” Help my school continue supporting my students' needs and dream by donating to this project.
Being the music teacher, I get to teach all of the students in the school and watch them grow. Because my students are so smart, I have to continually challenge them. To begin their music education foundation, I want to teach my students how to play the recorder. This will give them the (kinesthetic) opportunity to learn about pitch. I have a variety of percussive instruments and a dream of letting students create their own band where they write the song, complete with lyrics, instruments that they decide on, and a performance on stage. We need recorders to be able to create and perform melodic patterns.
Students deserve the opportunity to explore music with not only their voices but with their hands too.
With your generous donation, my students will be able to continue their love by learning how to read, compose, and perform music!
