My Students

The students at Adams elementary are a very large group of talented and wonderful kids that loves creativity and learning about music. These kids are great learners, musicians, and singers. Each student at this school were affected from hurricane Harvey. The majority of the students lost everything and i feel that what they really need is the creativity of music. I would love to get any help if possible to just make these kids smile so they can have an outlet away from all their worries.

My Project

The musical instruments will enable students to explore different genres of music. By being able to provide them with opportunities at school, students will get a head start to discover their talents.

Music education is also important because it will give students a way to connect with other people.

When you provide these opportunities, you are teaching to the whole child. The benefits of music education improves academic skills, develops physical skills, cultivates social skills, and refines discipline and patience. All of these benefits will ultimately help students in their core classes to become successful readers, writers, mathematicians, and scientists.
