My Students

I am a music teacher in Queens, N.Y. for kindergarten to third-grade students. Through a non-profit organization called "Music and the Brain," our students have been able to participate in learning the keyboard. This neuroscience-based program was designed to help students develop critical thinking, and tune their fine motor skills. Our students have become enticed by the instrument and the appealing songs provided by the program.

It has been a great joy of mine to watch students, as young as five years old, immerse themselves in the music and learn the discipline of practicing an instrument.

We are extremely excited to learn more new music techniques this school year! We are fortunate to have a keyboard lab containing 17 keyboards. We are also fortunate to have an after-school program that teaches students various genres of music, cultural songs and dance styles. We want to keep the music program alive and thriving to inspire students to use music as an outlet in their lives.

My Project

We are looking forward to starting our after-school chorus and dance program. The students are always excited to be a part of this program that takes place after-school hours until 5pm. The school day plus the extra hours after school makes it a very long day for our 1st-3rd grade students. This stretch of time can make our students feel lethargic and worn out unable to fully participate in our singing and dancing.

Please help our classroom by donating to provide our students healthy snacks to sustain their physical and mental energy for our music program!

With these healthy snacks, which are gluten and peanut free, our students can feel full and focused to learn more music!
