My Students

Our school is in Bed-Stuy between the Marcy and Tompkins Projects. We are a low to low-middle income school. The students are between ages 11-15 years old. I can say that in past years there has been a variety of students at various levels. A majority of my students are on the Autism Spectrum, have Down Syndrome, an emotional disturbance, or another similar learning disability. Students of this caliber respond greatly to music and having more instruments in our classroom will allow my students to develop and grow their musical skills.

My Project

My classroom would benefit from instruments such as: Soprano ukuleles, Orff instruments (xylophones, metallophones), djembes and tubanos, wind instruments (trumpets, trombones, French horns, saxophones, clarinets, flutes, baritone horns/euphoniums, tubas), string instruments (violin, viola, cello, bass) and percussion instruments (bell kits, bass drum, xylophone, marimba, timpani drums, drum pads etc.) Currently my school only has a few djembes, a few guitars, hand drums, keyboards, and recorders. This Donor’s Choose page will be specifically for SOPRANO UKULELES. My students would benefit greatly from these materials as we can learn how to play these instruments and make more music to enjoy and learn from! If we have enough wind instruments we will be able to start our very own school band!
