Sound Effects

My students need instruments to create sound effects to accompany stories and poems.

My Students

Have you ever tried to create sound effects but didn't have the materials you needed? This is the challenge my students are facing.

I work at a Title 1 school.

Many of my kids attend before and after school care at the school. They want opportunities in the arts including music. Every chance they get they are in the music room exploring our instruments. Next year we will be adding more after school clubs. I will be doing more formal instruction after school with them.

My Project

We will be looking at poems and stories and trying to create sound effects to go with the story. Sometimes we might just use the instruments and do a retell of the story with instruments. Our students need the chance to be creative. These special instruments will help us do just that.

Creativity is what it comes down to.

I want to give the students tools to help them be inspired to create their own music and sound effects. Some of these instruments are also from other cultures giving us an opportunity to explore and learn about them as we use the instruments. The students are genuinely excited when we receive new instruments and are eager to explore them. Help me provide them with more opportunities to do that.
