Ms. Ellis from Pittsville MD is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ukulele Learning!

Help me give my students 12 Ukulele's. This would allow them to have one Ukulele per two children. What a fun way to learn music!

My Students

My students are very hard working. My little town is a supportive and encouraging community that pushes these students to succeed to the best of their ability! Due to the towns small size, most of their cultural experiences come from within their school lessons.

I would love to give my students the opportunity to experience different instruments and cultures through the learning of Ukulele.

Some musical concepts that can be taught through Ukulele are instrument families, rhythms, chords, and scales. Thank you for your consideration!

My Project

This is my first year at my new school. Last year, I purchased Ukuleles for my students and found great success! It is an easy enough instrument to learn and a tool to build their musical confidence. We explored many cultures and musical concepts through Ukuleles! I would love to be able to bring that opportunity to my new students.

For some students, music class is their opportunity to be truly themselves.

It is my job as their music educator to give them as many outlets as possible to express their emotions and feelings while teaching them valuable music lessons!
