My students need a class set of Ukuleles to experience a musical environment.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students face many challenges both in and out of the classroom on a daily basis. Out of about 900 students, there is over 15 different languages spoken throughout our school. We strive so every student can achieve the highest level of success.
Where words fail, music speaks.
I teach at a Title I school in North Carolina, where many students have the desire to be better but lack the materials to help them along the way.
The greatest joy is watching a student perform on an instrument just by watching and listening to what they hear-no lecture is needed. In that frozen moment language no longer matters and the feeling of success fills the room. I strive to produce a safe environment where every student can feel successful. I think these instruments will give them a chance to explore the world of music individually and with each other.
In this project, I am asking to get a classroom set of 30 ukuleles to introduce to my music appreciation classes. Currently my classroom does not have enough instruments of anything for all of my students to learn together.
Dear Music Thanks for always clearing my head, healing my heart, and lifting my spirits.
I have seen how music can reach those students who most thought unreachable, open a shell for a child who closed theirs so tight. I know my students will be excited to learn the ukulele and play along with different recordings. I will have them create different individual and group compositions to perform for/with their peers.
