My students need multicultural rhythm packs and boomwhackers to recreate rhythms and songs that are from other parts of the world. The laminator and audio cable give the ability to share music and create concert flyers.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are all potential greatness waiting for that one special opportunity to shine. They have the drive to conquer any challenge, no matter how difficult, they rise to the occasion. Even when it comes to instruments, they have already started to experiment with creating their own.
Students volunteered to come to the new school that was closer to their house.
The school is in a urban environment where the crime rates keep students inside at night. We are fortunate for a new building, but we are lacking supplies.
My future musicians all receive free or reduced price lunch which sets them up to be ready to learn how music helps shape their lives. Not all my students will be contestants on the next American Idol, but I am sure a few of mine will be the judges.
Authentic and vibrantly colored percussion instruments like guiros, maracas, claves, and boomwhackers will allow students to love learning about and playing music from other parts of the world.
Audio cables give the students the freedom to express themselves through the presentation of songs.
This gives an idea of what they listen to at home and or with their families.
Listening friday's have always been my favorite way to show new music as well as get a sense of what the students like to listen to when they relax. Listening to music that students like to listen to is like looking through a window to their complex minds!
