Mrs. Hawks from Phoenix AZ is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ukulele Music Class

My students need 30 ukuleles to have a better understanding about music and have the opportunity to play an instrument.

  • $994 goal

This project expired on September 27, 2013.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our school does not offer a band or orchestra, so I feel that having ukuleles that the students can learn with will have a better understanding of music and also, enjoy coming to music class.

Our students at P P S do not have the privilege to go out and have music lessons or have an instrument to play other than a recorder.

As we get older we have more interests in certain things and I feel that these students would have a lot of fun learning how to play the ukulele.

My Project

If we could get a whole class set of Ukuleles each student will have the opportunity to play an instrument in class and not be behind due to not having an instrument to play. If we get a whole class set the students will learn how to play Core Knowledge songs and be able to perform the songs for their parents to show how much they have worked on them.

I feel that getting a whole class set of Ukuleles is important because each student will be able to learn at the same pace as everyone else because they each will have their own instrument to play with.
