My students are very hardworking kids who come primarily from families that work in the farming industry. Many of these kids work hard at home helping their families and work equally hard in our athletics department.
I am trying to spark a bigger interest in developing their musical talent.
We have recently added ukuleles, and they have been a huge success. I am hoping that if we improve our percussion world instrument inventory, we can get some interest sparked in developing an instrumental program. I KNOW that it would be a tremendous asset for building a music community!
I am hoping that by gaining some extremely cool percussion instruments and implementing world drum circles that I can spark a tremendous desire in my students to own that THEY CAN become talented instrumentalists! They are such good and caring kids! I already have them singing and dancing beautifully! World percussion instruments will start a fire in them musically that could really get my dream instrumental program off the ground!
We were blessed this past year with ten ukuleles.
The students' talent is very apparent, and after they experience how much fun world percussion can be, their hunger to play instruments will be limitless!
