My Students

I teach students from all types of lifestyles. They are energetic and full of imagination. They love to take risks in order to grow in their music education. Many of my students struggle in areas of confidence and focus but they still find the courage to try despite their weaknesses and because of this, I have seen many of these students blossom into confident music learners and performers.

My students are diverse in their interests in the classroom.

Many enjoy music theory; others love singing some love instrument playing and some all of the above. These students I see as future leaders of the world and they are going to take the skills they have learned in music such as cooperative learning, teamwork, and critical thinking skills, multitask performing and sharing of themselves to give joy to others, into this world to make it an amazing place for every person they touch.

My Project

These materials will make a difference in the music classroom by allowing my visual and tactile learners the ability to see how music is played on an instrument while reading music that we practice in our classroom. It will show the students the relevance of music reading. The various colors on the xylophone will help students to find the notes more effectively and efficiently, saving time and making learning music enjoyable.

These materials promote individual and cooperate learning opportunities and help facilitate student engagement which will keep the climate charged to peak students' interest for learning now and later.
