My Students

Every single student at my school receives music education. Many students are also involved in the band and chorus, and these groups bring great joy to their lives.

We have seen much improvement at our school through student involvement in the arts.

Students are excited to come to school and come to music class to sing, dance, create, and make music together. Music forms a community at our school and brings parents into our schools to see their students perform many times throughout the year, performances students can truly be proud of. We had parents involved in an after school music ensemble with their students. The parents even participated in the concluding performance for the after school group along with their student.

Our school has a passion and love for music but is lacking some of the basic materials needed to run a music program and classroom. This is a high needs school and our students come from low-income households and receive free lunches. They need the tools and supplies to continue challenging themselves musically and creating performances and music to take pride in.

My Project

Many students at my school have requested to learn piano. However, I have only one piano keyboard in my music classroom that I use to accompany my students. The students get a chance to use a piano keyboard during "music parties" that the students earn through focus and good behavior. During a music party, the piano station is always deemed the best by the kids. I have also had students beg to come in during their/my lunch to get piano lessons.

If I can obtain these roll-up pianos, it will give my students a starting point for learning the piano that they could transfer later on to a real piano keyboard.

It will also help them further their music notation reading skills, which they will need to join the orchestra program I run at my school. It will strengthen their teamwork skills and collaboration skills as I will have groups of two or threes on each roll-up piano.

I have designed a fun and engaging piano curriculum for my students. Please help us get the resources so my students can get started!
