My Students

Sing, Say, Dance, and Play! Every day an exciting adventure awaits my students when they enter my music classroom, a.k.a. Ms. K.'s House of Music. We sing, say, dance, and play to experience music at its fullest!

I teach music to sixth-eighth grade students in a STEAM public school in Missouri.

My students range from middle class to poverty level, and some also experience violence in their neighborhoods on a daily basis. Sometimes music is the only solace to their day.

Despite their economic differences, all of my students are eager to express themselves through music. Every day they enter the music room with excitement and an eagerness to learn.

My Project

My music students love to find science lurking around every turn in their music class. Currently we are studying frequencies and wave lengths and need two iPads to conduct our experiments. The oscilloscopes we need to run sound experiments need an iPad to host them. The students will use the downloaded oscilloscopes on the iPads to discover and test frequencies and wave lengths of various instruments. We will also use the iPads to program our robots we have to play melodies on the xylophone.

So much science is about to happen in our House of Music with your help!

Thank you for considering a donation to our project!
