My Students

My students are energetic learners from the south side of Chicago. They are curious learners and active children and adolescents who are constantly exploring the world around them.

Our students want to take learning into their own hands, and with the right resources, they can have the power to explore music in a personal way.

Self-driven, my students are highly engaged in the learning process when given a chance to work independently. They love to explore and try new things.

My Project

My students need basic classroom supplies for focused music learning. With essentials like tissues and pencils, students will be able to access learning at all times, having the necessary resources available within the classroom. Beyond classroom essentials, students need music resources including musical texts and headphones, along with required headphone accessories to allow sharing of keyboards and iPads during music instruction.

With the necessary classroom essentials available, students will have lasting learning experiences.

With the headphones, students will learn how to play piano on the keyboard. With the text resources, students will practice music literacy skills. With pencils, students will write about the music that they hear.
