My Students

"I love playing the xylophones!" That's what my students always say. For many of them, school is their only opportunity to learn to play instruments. But how do we keep them in good working order?

I teach music to students in grades K-5 at a Title 1 school in suburban South Carolina.

There are over 1000 kids at the school and we have two music teachers. We teach regular education students, special education students, and even hearing impaired students. Our students LOVE coming to music class, especially when we get to play instruments!

My Project

We are very fortunate to have a several xylophones at our school. I want to keep them in good working order so students can continue to learn for many years to come. The covers requested in this proposal will keep dust and dirt out of the instruments when they are not in use. These resources will also allow me to teach my students responsibility. They will learn that we must respect the instruments and take care of them every day for them to last into the future.

We love our instruments, but we need the resources to keep them in good shape.

Please help to ensure thousands of children have the opportunity to learn music skills and learn responsibility of instrument care at the same time. Thank you for your support of music education!
