My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty area, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, my students rise above it all!

My students are creative, clever and very passionate about music!

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential music abilities. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of musical excellence!

My Project

My students hold a very special place in my heart and life. It is my goal to musically provide for them the best way I can and the following supplies will help us grow tremendously! Currently, I have five very nice instruments that sit on the ground. We really need these instrument stand racks to keep them off the ground and in good condition.

You can't whistle a symphony alone; it takes an orchestra to do it!

This project will allow these instruments to be safely used for many years to come! Please consider financially giving to fund this project!
