Tune Into Music Class

My students need a stereo to use to listen to recorded music.

My Students

My students are musicians in every way. My kindergarten through sixth grade students create and perform music in English, Spanish, and languages from around the world. Many of my students are bilingual and we strive to have a culturally inclusive classroom.

My goal for my classroom is for students to have access to quality music-making materials.

Our school is located in a low-income neighborhood and the majority of students qualify for free or reduced lunch. My students' current financial realities should not dictate what educational materials are available to them. We are hoping to fill the gap between what our school resources are able to provide and what is available to students in high income neighborhoods.

My Project

My students need a stereo to listen to music for dancing, singing, and analyzing. We currently don't have a CD player in our music classroom and are only able to play music through small computer speakers which don't have enough power to be heard in all parts of our classroom.

With a stereo system, all students in the music classroom will be able to hear recorded music.

Students will be much more successful in analyzing and performing with recorded music when they can hear it clearly. This stereo will also allow students to participate in more music and movement activities as they will be able to hear the music above the bustle of movement.
