My Students

While walking through the school's campus, you hear a noise. Your first thought is, "wow, it's thundering." As you approach the music room, you realize it is coming from within. As you open the door, you realize this is not the elementary music class you remember. Students are moving and grooving to the music.

This is my second year at the school and I am working to transform the program into something amazing.

In my classroom, my students sing, move and play instruments in every lesson. They are learning important skills that involve expression/creativity, coordination, literacy, fluency, collaborating, and ear training as well as math, science & social studies.

Our school serves a very diverse student population. Many of our students are receiving free or reduced lunch. We service a number of English Language Learners. Our school also has a Social & Emotional Achievement (SEA) class for 3rd through 5th grade students. Despite their lack of financial resources, language barriers, and other learning barriers, our students have demonstrated enthusiastically that they can achieve academically & socially.

My Project

The school is 37 years old & has instruments about that age. I would like to see the number of instruments, specifically wrist & ankle bells that my students can play, grow. We do not have any bells at the moment which is a vital staple to any music classroom.

My students love to play the instruments that we currently have, but often have to share with 2-3 friends.I would love for every student in my class to have the opportunity to play an instrument all at once.

Please consider helping me provide a fun and engaging music environment for my elementary students!
