Help me give my students ukuleles!!! Our school does not have many instruments for students to explore and create with. Ukuleles will allow students to learn a string instrument, create songs, play in an ensemble and explore their
My students are natural musicians and amaze me every day. They really love music and have shown great growth this year. Before this year many students did not know how to read music and did not have any knowledge of musical concepts such as dynamics, harmony, and pulse. They want to learn about composers, music genres and instruments.
Many students step into my classroom feeling alone and leave feeling like they belong.
My students come from all different walks of life and living situations. I strive to create an environment in my classroom that allows everyone to feel like they belong and have a voice. Students often love creating music because they are able to express themselves.
As I plan for the new school year I was looking at the music instrument selection at school to see we do not have many instruments. My students love to come to music class to create and learn. My classroom serves as a safe haven for many students. Unfortunately they are not able to play anything other than drums at this point.
Ukuleles will enable my students to explore their musicality in a new deeper way.
Ukuleles use the treble clef which would allow students to use that knowledge of music notation. These instruments will allow the information and music styles to come alive for students.
