Mrs. Weyers from Stevens Point WI is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Strumming Up Some Music With Ukuleles!

My students need MU40 Ukulele's in order to experience exciting ways to create music. Students who learn how to play an instrument early on in their life, usually continue playing an instrument into their adult life.

My Students

Students in grades K-6 at our school love to create music! From folk dancing, drumming, to playing on the Orff instruments, children love to share their music.

One of the best compliments a music teacher can have, is for a student to share their love for music by using their newly aquired skills at the annual school Talent Show.

Watching music students perform on stage is the biggest thrill a music teacher can experience. Being able to implement ukulele's into the music curriculum will continue to feed and nurture the student's love for music.

My Project

The ukelele has become a popular instrument. Students who learn how to play the Ukulele in class, will be able to accompany themselves to many types of folk music. I will be able to direct the students to many websites to download free music. This should help the student feel that there are many places to find and print out music at now cost.

Being able to teach a student how to play an instrument could mean the student will have the ability to continue making music for the rest of their life.

Being there to nurture the young child through the "beginnings" of how a musical instrument is played, is a humbling experience.
