From the Teacher

Thank you so much for generously donating to my project and supporting my students with their musical endeavors. When I told my students that our grant was funded they could not wait to see their new musical instruments! Some of them asked me every day if they arrived yet. I'm not sure who was more excited to see the big box on the table the day they arrived, but my students could not wait to rip the box open and start playing their new boomwhackers. 

Since getting our boomwhackers, my students have used them often and enjoyed them immensely. They have used their boomwhackers to play with a steady beat, improvise in small groups, learn to play instruments together in a large ensemble, and have fun making music with their peers. The boomwhackers help my younger students learn to watch the conductor, understand high and low pitches, play together with a group, and add more movement and fun to their musical exploration. The best part of the boomwhackers is that every student that can hold a boomwhacker can play one and have fun- while some instruments require fine motor skills to master, the boomwhackers can be played on any surface successfully with little effort. 

I want to say a heartfelt thank you again for providing new musical opportunities for my students. My students love to play the boomwhackers and have grown so much as young musicians since they have been used. I really appreciate all that you have done for my students.

With gratitude,
Ms. Letten
