My Students

My students are from a high-poverty area in Cleveland. Our school is a science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics based school which seeks to provide students with experiential learning. With the problem-based learning approach scholars are encouraged to develop creativity and problem-solving skills. Our school population has a high concentration of students with special needs ranging from autism, emotional disorders, and SLD. We have many students who are English language learners in our school. Some of the languages our students speak are Spanish, Somali, and Maay Maay. Our students have full-time physical education, music and art teachers. Our students also have one-to-one technology.

My Project

My students have been studying the Orff-Schulwerk methodology in music class. We have built quite an instrument section but we are not able to play all the instruments as a class since we have too few mallets to allow all the scholars to play at once. The mallets we do have are an ad hoc collection of mismatched equipment. As a result, our instruments produce inadequate tone.

Having great sounding mallets will help our scholars take pride in the songs they are learning and help them develop a sense of good tone.

We would also like a stand to transport our xylophone. It will help the scholars use good playing position while they play and make our instrument more portable and less susceptible to damage.
