Mrs. KG from Palmetto FL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

So You Want to Be a Better Sight-Reader?

My students need to keep up with their music reading skills to help them become not only better singers, but well-rounded musicians! With this board, we will be able to practice sight reading daily with ease!

My Students

Our school is located in the Tampa Bay area, Florida with a high poverty rate. My students are passionate, driven, motivated, creative, and hungry to learn more. This is a performing arts public charter school, and I strive for our students to get ready for the real world through hands-on experience and performances. I reach students from grades 6th through 12th, and they learn how to read music, sing as an ensemble, perform as a soloist, as well as how to sightread on a daily basis.

Music teaches students how to be a better member of the society, and I need your help for them to continue to grow and soar.

To see the look on their faces when they sing their first chord as an ensemble, or when they successfully hit their high note is not only inspiring, but also sparks their desires to spread the power of music. Music is a universal language, and I get the honor of witnessing on a daily basis where students from all different backgrounds and beliefs learn to come together and perform as one ensemble.

This is where you come in!

My Project

I am requesting a music staff whiteboard to facilitate my students' knowledge and sight-reading skills in order to get them audition-ready for the real world! Having an accessible music staff whiteboard will allow students to practice reading/dictating music daily, and it will fortify their musicianship skills.

My students are eager to expand their knowledge and sight-reading skills to grow their technique and to share their passion for music!

I truly believe this board will help our students get ready for their performance assessments, All-state auditions, and will build confidence in themselves not only as musicians, but in their preparations for college entrance exams and auditions!

Thank you for helping our students reach their full potential!
