My Students

The students in this school are on the lower-income level. They are often living in shelters or temporary housing. Some are here year after year, but others come and go due to life circumstances. School seems to be a stabilizing force in their lives. They are also a very sweet group of children, and each year they get better and better. When they come to music class, they are eager to learn and to try every new experience.

They get to try things that they don't see in other places.

When it comes to concerts and performances, they are truly excited and proud. They enthusiastically participate in activities that are novel and innovative.

My Project

Speed Stacking Cups are a great activity for physical education to develop eye-hand coordination, kinesthetic and tactile growth, and healthy competition. Kids get really excited and involved in their own progress.

But cup stacking creates a wonderful partnership when music is added—as students perform routines timed to music.

Normally, the idea is to stack and unstack the cups as fast as possible, but when music is introduced the goal is to fit the stacking patterns to a beat and series of patterns. While the goal of cup stacking is competition—to stack faster than everyone else. With musical cup stacking, students have to work together as a team to create a performance.
