My Students

Here at our school, we have over 500 students. We are a Title I school which means that our students come from lower-income households.

I am the music teacher which means I get to teach every student in the building.

My students love to come to music to sing, dance, play instruments and, most importantly, to learn! They love to be creative by adding accompaniments to songs they know as well as by creating music of their very own. I love being their teacher!

My Project

My students love to use the drums. They are constantly drumming on things, and they will tell you that using the chair as a drum isn't as much fun as actually having a drum in your hands. These new drums would open the door to a variety of rhythmic activities. They would be able to fine tune their rhythmic skills and their listening skills with new and exciting drum activities.

These new drums will give my students the ability to express themselves rhythmically.

They will be able to play rhythms that are given to them in class, as well as rhythms that they create on their own.
