My Students

Music students in my classroom sing, move, and play instruments in every lesson. In addition, they create performance pieces for concerts throughout the school year. They learn important skills that involve expression, coordination, literacy, collaboration and ear training.

Our school serves a diverse student body.

Most of our students come from low-income households. One hundred percent of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. Despite their lack of financial resources, our kids have demonstrated enthusiastically that they can achieve academically. Many of them excel in the classroom and attend after school enrichment sessions like Robotics, Honor Choir, and Musical Theater.

My Project

These egg shakers will be used to help young learners develop a sense of steady beat, and accompany songs, stories, and poems. They will also aid them in learning about musical tempos and expression. The bell tree is an instrument that my students have yet to experience. This instrument will help them differentiate between high sounds and low sounds. They will also use it to create sound tableaus.

Students will use the instruments that I am requesting to create and perform pieces in an ensemble.

They will learn how to read music, play with proper technique, improvise, and follow the direction of a conductor. They will also learn how to create a musical accompaniment for singers and dancers. In the end, they will be able to perform a concert for the school community. In addition, they will learn about diversity and world cultures.
