My Students

Students at my school receive music instruction everyday. Music for my students is an important part of their school day.

My school is a small, rural, mountain school in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and many of my students come from low-income households and are on free or reduced lunch.

Students in PK-5th grade benefit greatly from receiving music instruction everyday. You will find many of them singing songs from class on the playground, at home, or while working on the family ranch. Music is important in my district for my students in all grades.

My Project

Last year, my music classroom received beautiful baritone ukuleles for my students to learn. Ukulele is my year long musical project with my 4th grade class to teach them about the science, technique and to expose them to string instruments. Part of this experience is performing with our ukuleles at programs. An issue we ran into last year was where to put them when not in use during concerts. In a pinch, we placed them on the gym floor and placed safety cones around them. It worked but isn't an ideal long term situation. Accidents happen - people accidentally step on instruments or an instrument could be crushed while on the ground. In order to keep these beautiful instruments safe and secure during concerts, I am seeking specific ukuleles stands that will hold them upright which will look better than placing them on the ground and most importantly, keep them safe from damage.
