Mrs. Nelson from Clark SD is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Stands for Orff Instruments

My students need stands for our Orff Instruments to keep them off the floor.

My Students

My kids have not had the opportunity to experience much in the music classroom besides singing. They love giving concerts and always sing their hearts out. We are becoming more diverse as children are coming in from other countries to our area.

My students love to have fun while learning.

I want them to experience a wide variety of musical instruments and styles.

There is much talent to uncover and my students would benefit greatly from new instruments they've never experienced before.

My Project

We have a nice collection of Orff Instruments in our classroom. My kids need to share them since we do not have enough for each student. Stands would make it easier for them play with a partner. We also need to move them frequently to accommodate the different age levels that use the room. Stands would allow the kids to set up the instruments without my help.

Orff Instruments are essential to our curriculum.

I want them to last for many years to come. Having stands to keep them off the ground will allow them to be used and kept safe off of the floor.
