I teach the integrated arts to students in kindergarten through fifth grade, though I am primarily certified in music education.
Through music, visual art, dance, and drama, we explore creativity, build teamwork, and develop a strong work ethic.
I design my curriculum to allow students to explore a wide variety of instruments and expose them to wide variety of music styles and diverse cultures.
My school is located in a rural area. We have 448 students in grades K-5 and 47.7% qualify for free and reduced lunch.
Help us tune our ukuleles! We were recently awarded 40 new ukuleles from Kala Music. The kids are so excited to play them but the new strings are not holding their pitch yet. It is taking a long time for me to tune each one and get the strings properly stretched.
If I had a set of clip-on tuners, I could teach the students how to tune them and we could do this quickly at the beginning of each class.
My largest classes have 30 students. I am asking for 15 tuners because I plan for students to share their tuner with a partner.
