My Students

My students are tuneful, beautiful, artful people! Our classroom is filled with joy and active music-making. We sing songs from around the world, move expressively, dance, play instruments, and create music. I teach my students that they are all musicians, and as they grow up through the music program, they take charge of their own musicianship.

This year, we made it into Carnegie Hall's Musical Explorers program, and we need your help to get us to the concert!

My students all live in New York City, but many of them have never experienced live music in a theater or concert hall. Most of them come to our school because it is one of the only schools in New York City to provide free, public, single-sex education. They make a commitment with their families to come to school every day, work hard, and eventually complete a college degree. They may face financial hardship, but they are dedicated students, and I am inspired to work hard for them.

My Project

New York City has so much to offer in the arts, but it can be very expensive to attend live performances. However, my goal is to provide an authentic musical experience for my students despite any financial difficulty. In New York City, that ought to include the legendary places music is made.

This project will bring my second graders to Carnegie Hall, the storied music venue, for the musical performance of a lifetime.

The Musical Explorers program seeks out six dynamic local musicians who hail from other countries and brings them together for two unforgettable concerts.

Students learn the musician's cultural and original songs by listening, singing, and dancing. Carnegie Hall also provides colorful workbooks to enhance students' knowledge about the musician's language, traditional dress, musical heritage, and more. I have known students to talk about these concerts for years afterward. They keep asking, "When are we going back to Carnegie Hall?"

This is your chance to help immerse young children in the history of music! With your donation, you will help my students get to the great music venue, Carnegie Hall, and learn the music of other countries. What a way to make a difference!
