My Students

I have the opportunity to teach music to numerous enthusiastic students each day. I want to expose them to as much as possible. Music is the vehicle that helps me shape these young minds.

The group of kids I have are very self-motivated, have a genuine love for music, and are eager to grow and learn.

We are located in north Mississippi, near Memphis, TN. The area is extremely fast-growing, especially from the Hispanic population. My students range from grades 9-12, but I primarily teach the lower grades at this time. This means I will have this particular group for several more years. Our school has more than half the students receiving free or reduced lunch. With your support, we can take what we do to the next level!

My Project

I have a few students that require a music stand due to limited mobility. Fortunately, we have recently had a project for music stands funded! My students and I have loved to have them in the choir room. Having these stands have opened so many opportunities for learning in different ways. We would love to receive more music stands so we don't have to share and we can spread out a little more.

We love to use kinesthetic gestures to help free the body and voice while singing.

With these music stands, we will be able to more easily incorporate movement during the learning process - prior to the music being memorized. Sheet music and folders can easily get in the way when trying to hold them.
