My Students

I'm fortunate to work with about 1200 brilliant, elementary school students on a daily basis. We go to a large school in the Atlanta metro area. In all areas of the school day we seek to teach citizenship, community, and moral values and help our students grow into caring people.

Though many of my students come from low income households, they are innovative and creative, not letting boundaries stop them.

Music gives children an outlet to express emotion and ideas and grabs hold of their attention. Their eyes light up when they can take music making into their own hands and create something absolutely new.

My Project

Do you remember the joy of hitting a drum or playing a piano key for the first time? New sounds that you know you've created are exciting to hear! But how can you make those new sounds without quality instruments at your fingertips?

Pitched percussion instruments like these glockenspiels give my students a chance to explore new ways to create music.

Patting, clapping, and speaking rhythms can only take us so far. With glockenspiels like these, students have a chance to change rhythm exercises into melodies and songs. I hear my students singing and humming in the hallways, on the playground, and all over the building every day. They have the inspiration and just need an outlet. With two more glockenspiels in the room, every student would have more opportunities to practice, compose, and explore.

I want all of my students to have an equal chance at making a unique creation and honing their skills. I don't want my students' creativity or passion to be squelched just because they don't have the resources available to them. Each person deserves a chance.
