As a teacher in an elementary music classroom, I am always looking for new ways to engage students in a fun and creative environment. Coming into my new school district three years ago, I saw there was a need to generate funds to incorporate more instrument use in our classroom. The more students are able to experience and play, the more they are able to connect with music and the world around them. Through this, my goal is to make music a positive learning experience for each student.
I have some of the most fun, polite, and hard-working students anyone could ask for!
My students are always excited to come to my classroom, as we are continually finding new ways to explore music through different learning experiences.
What child doesn't like to play the drums?! My students will be able to use these tubanos for a multitude of musical opportunities. They will learn a variety of songs and arrangements that will enhance their musical skills and their overall experience in our music classroom. And, of course, playing drums is really engaging and fun! Students will have an opportunity, with the purchase of these instruments, to be more engaged and more hands-on with their own music making. With a general class size of over twenty students, the instruments we have are far too few to use effectively in a whole group setting.
Ideally, we would like to fill our classroom with enough instruments for all students to be playing and learning along with everyone instead of having to wait and watch while the students take turns or share an instrument together, limiting their musical experience.
