My Students

Our school is a Title 1 school. Our students come from a variety of diverse cultures and more than 70% of the students receiving free and reduced meals. The students are highly impacted with a high number of low socioeconomic families and a high number of English as a 2nd language students.

These students do not have the comforts of many other children their age, but they work hard to improve themselves for their own future.

The opportunities they receive in music class are often their only exposure to the arts.

My Project

I am hoping to purchase some iPads for my music classroom. As a teacher, my goal is to instill a love of music that will last a lifetime. As a result, I like to expose my students to a various genres and a variety of ways to learn about music.

The iPads that I receive will help with this in many ways.

The students will be able to use apps that are enjoyable for learning musical concepts (for example Rhythm Cat) and creating music (i.e. Garageband) in a method different than just reading sheet music and playing/singing in class all day. Students are part of a technological age, and the use of technology in music is just another way to connect and engage students in class.

Also, classrooms today are a mix of various types of learners. Some students learn best with technology and the iPads would help them be successful in music. I have students with disabilities who cannot sing or play an instrument, but are able to use a touch screen. The iPads would allow these students the ability to be part of music classroom without feeling like they cannot do what others are doing in the class.
