Help me give my students more fun-filled music lessons with one-on-one hand drums.
Our music room is a safe and fun place where my students make music together. They walk into the room, I grab my ukulele, and we sing hello to each other. Despite challenges they might have, I want my students to find comfort in music.
I teach every class in our school from Pre-Kindergarten to 5th grade, nearly a total of 500 students, at a Title I elementary school in Washington Heights in Manhattan, New York City.
Many of my students come from a Hispanic background. For most of them, our music class is the only opportunity for their music lessons. Therefore, I want to make our time together as meaningful as possible.
Our school maintains relatively small class sizes, and that enables teachers to give more tailored instruction, but this is a factor which contributes to a tight budget. In addition, a lot of students come from low-income families. Nevertheless, I am determined to do my best not to let those factors stand in the way of my students getting the resources they deserve. I hope to provide them with the right tools and opportunities through the support here at DonorsChoose.org.
Hand drums are such versatile instruments. You can do so many activities with hand drums from a simple rhythm echoing game to performing improvisation. Since I am being trained in the Orff approach, I am learning more about how to use percussion instruments in my classroom. Hand drums are very useful, but I currently only have a few.
I would love to have more hand drums so that each student can have an option to use one without sharing.
These thin hand drums are especially perfect for our lower grades students because they often have a difficult time holding our regular hand drums due to their size.
I am excited that I came across these thin hand drums on clearance sale. The price is unbelievable. It looks like the company is no longer making the smallest size of this thin-line hand drum series, and this size is perfect for my students. I would love to bring these to my classroom with your help. Please consider helping my students. Thank you for taking your time and reading our story.
