Music teacher Lindsey Prather works at Westover Hills Elementary and Fisher and needs a little help from the community. This particular project (dry erase markers, pencils, manuscript paper) is up for funds matching, but she has to get donations quickly to make sure to get the matching, since more than one project is eligible. She also wanted to send a big thank you to all those in the community that have donated on previous projects and let you know that step by step the Westover Hills music program is moving toward modernity. You can donate for the latest project at Donors Choose.
Music is a language all its own. It has its own special symbols, notes and characters that take time, patience and materials to learn. We already have individual white boards for the students in our class, but unfortunately, our markers have all dried up from drawing thousands of staffs and treble clefs on them! New dry erase markers and erasers will help the students learn to draw musical symbols on their own. The theory book can be copied and then those worksheets can be put into dry erase pockets, so that every student in the school can do those sheets without wasting tons of paper. The composer posters will inspire the older students as they put their new pencils to the manuscript paper to compose music of their own.
