My Students

Sing, say, dance, and play! Every day an exciting adventure awaits my students when they enter my music classroom, a.k.a. Ms. K.'s House of Music. We sing, say, dance, and play to experience music at its fullest!

I teach music to sixth-eighth grade students in a STEAM public school in Missouri.

My students range from middle class to poverty level, and some also experience violence in their neighborhoods on a daily basis. Sometimes music is the only solace to their day.

Despite their economic differences, all of my students are eager to express themselves through music. Each day they enter the music room with excitement and an eagerness to learn.

My Project

My choir students are choosing music for their concert this year that best reflects them. My choir represents many cultures and gender identities. We plan on performing our #ISeeMe concert this winter. The only thing that my students still need is a professional accompanist to accompany the music they choose. It is important for my students to be represented in our choir music. Music has the profound ability to make everyone feel included. I want my students to go further and be in charge of choosing their music and running the rehearsals with the accompanist.

Having a qualified accompanist will ensure my students’ success in presenting their identities through music!

A qualified accompanist will make all the difference for my students’ performance! It is difficult for students to get the full benefit of performing unless we hire a professional accompanist.

We appreciate you reading about our project and appreciate any help you can give.
