My Project

My students are very energetic and they love to sing! Most of my students are new to Chorus and reading music, but they have been very successful this year! We love to incorporate movement and body percussion in our singing, but right now my students have to hold their music while we're learning new repertoire.

Music stands will allow my students to see their music without holding it so we can add movement to our songs.

This will allow them to have their hands free during rehearsal. These music stands will also allow them to look up while singing, instead of looking down at a music folder.

Movement helps my students sing with more expression and dynamics, so these music stands would make a huge impact on their musicality.
