Mr. Scheer from Buffalo NY is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Young Musicians Need Glockenspiels!

My students need four more soprano glockenspiels so they can all make music at the same time.

My Students

Music is a very large part of the culture in our school and the surrounding community. My students are the most willing students I have taught when it comes to dancing, singing, and performing on instruments.

Students here love music as an outlet for creativity, expression, and cultural identification!

I currently teach grades K-8th in the inner city of Buffalo, NY. I teach approximately 450 students. My students love playing instruments and making music. My instrument supply is limited at the moment, and I am doing everything I can to provide my students with more instruments and instruments of quality. Please support my students and their passion for music.

My Project

We currently have a few glockenspiels in our classroom but not enough for everyone to be actively involved all the time. With the addition of these glockenspiels, we can have everyone involved playing melodies, harmonies, and chords to some great songs.

We are currently working on Isn't She Lovely by Stevie Wonder and Get Down On It by Kool and the Gang.

The students love practicing their parts and then playing them along with the recordings. I have observed how much my students enjoy making music with the glockenspiels and helping each other. Not only are my students making music, but they are making social bonds and we have a lot of fun doing it!
