Mrs. Dugan from Indianapolis IN is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

We Need Your Help for Our Elementary Music Instrumentation

Help me give my students the opportunity to play on quality instruments. The alto xylophone and soprano will add to our Orff arrangements allowing more students to participate at one time in class.

My Students

Our students are creative, innovative and excited to explore new possibilities in world music. They excel in the Common Core areas as a result of developing self-confidence through musical performances.

Our students deserve to have the same as students in highly-funded school districts.

This happens by having the right tools to encourage and develop budding musicians. Our students rock the world with their bubbling personalities and eagerness to express their inner beings through the art of music exploration and performance.

My Project

We have begun to acquire quality Orff instruments for our elementary music program.

With large class sizes, our hope is to provide enough instruments for every child to play these during music classes.

The instruments in this project will add different voices to our instrumental Orff learning.

Our students love these instruments and keep asking when they will get more.

It is only with your generosity that we will reach our goal. We have had two Orff performances with the instruments we have and the students were so very proud of what they had accomplished.

Please consider helping our students to continues to learn with hands on instruction.
