My students need the C note and G note bass bars to help improve their ability to internalize beat. The bass bars are great for performing in programs and helps to accompany the students.

My students of ages three to eight come to school looking for a safe and welcoming environment that they will be cared for, loved and hope to get a great education. We are considered a Title 1 school at 81% of our student population being economically disadvantaged. The socioeconomic status of the students can sometimes have an affect on the students' abilities to become motivated and engaged.
I am wanting to enrich their musical lives by providing instruments for them.
My goal is for them to become better beat keeper and more tuneful musicians. These instruments will also be presented in program performances and weekly use in the classroom.
Each week, I see on average of 720 students with ages ranging from three to eight. These students come to my room with excitement on their faces anticipating what they will be presented with in my class this week. Their musical experience in 45 minutes may be the only musical experience they get that whole day.
These Bass Resonator Bars will make a difference in my students' lives by helping internalize the beat and accompanying other instruments.
They will be used in program performances and weekly in the classroom. These bass bars are made of good quality material so they do not break so easily. With these bass bars we will be able to be more effective in our Orff instrument performances which include xylophones, metallophones and glockenspiels.
