My Students

Sir Ken Robinson once said, "All children start their school careers with sparkling imaginations, fertile minds, and a willingness to take risks with what they think." My students reflect this truth each day at school. I love their curiosity and passion. My students are diverse, capable and curious. While they do not hide their frustrations they do not hold back their joy. It is a privilege to work with them each and every day.

My Project

In our middle school general music classrooms, we see a wide range of students with varying degrees of musical skills and knowledge. Regardless, our goal is to create opportunities for them to create, connect, respond, and perform music.

These keyboards will help us to unlock and ignite student creativity.

The request USB mini keyboards will transform their Chromebooks into music workstations. Students will have the capacity to create melodies, explore sounds, develop harmonies, construct rhythms, and collaborate musically. Pablo Picasso summed it up well; “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up”.
