My Students

I teach music at an elementary school with a booming population of 1000 students, grades Pre-k to sixth. My students experience music through singing, dancing, playing instruments, and musical theatre, and they are provided numerous opportunities to perform.

My students are diverse, and music helps us celebrate the differences that make us all unique!

We are 56% free and reduced lunch, we are 22% military children, we have many ESL students speaking a variety of languages, and we serve a unit of awesome students with Autism. Music brings students of all different backgrounds together to create and perform!

My Project

My students love to perform! We present a plentiful variety of concerts and musicals on our stage, averaging 15 shows in a school year. This set of FlipForm risers will help us to replace our current 25-year-old set of traditional metal risers. Our old risers are heavy, noisy, and limited the creativity of my students, as they can only be used in one way.

FlipForm risers are extremely versatile and will allow my RISING STARS to explore all aspects of live performance!

They can be used as traditional choral risers, but do not have to connect together. This allows them to fit more accessibly on our stage and locate performs closer to the microphones, so their beautiful music can be heard.

Additionally, with just a quick flip, the risers can be converted to platforms for use in musical theatre productions, or to raise up our instrumental ensembles to fit more performers on the stage. The possibilities are endless!

The FlipForm riser is light-weight and designed with rollers to quickly and easily transport from the music room to the stage, and back again. This also allows them to be moved on and off stage during performances, which we cannot do with our current risers. They require much less room to store during occasions when they are not in use. All these amazing characteristics result in less stress for the music teacher and unlimited exploration for the performers in creativity and confidence.

A FlipForm will benefit all my students, Kindergarten to 6th Grade, in their musical and performing arts endeavors for many years to come. My students and I appreciate your support as we strive for the highest and rise to the stars!
