My Students

My students are a mixture of socioeconomic backgrounds, races, talents, and life experiences. They love to be hands-on with their learning and games are the way to their heart. They get the privilege of coming to the music room 60 times each year for the class and we try to pack as much as possible into each day together. My goals are to create well-rounded students who can recognize that music is universal. My students are the future of the world!

My Project

A parachute is a tool that can express each of the elements of music. By manipulation, it can show dynamics, form, rhythm, tempo, and melody through its movement.

This tool would allow my students to feel, see, and hear music in a different way.

Please help my students experience music in an incredibly tangible way. All 850 of my school's students would have access to this overwhelmingly exciting material. This parachute would allow me to not only create new lessons but increase the engagement of tried and true lessons. This parachute entices the giggles out of students - when kids are laughing in the classroom, they are learning!
