How to Learn More Science and Math Through Music (2017-2018, 2016-2017)

Abraham Lincoln Elementary School, located in Palm Desert, has a student body which is 92% socioeconomically disadvantaged, with 50% of students identifying as English Learners. To make science and math more comprehensible to the student population, this project will implement music instruction for students in grades 1, 4, and 5. First graders will learn movement and counting, fourth graders will learn to play the recorder, and fifth graders will learn to play an instrument of their choice. At least one day a week, after-school music instruction will also become available to about 70 students. As students grow in confidence and ability, they will take math and science tests to evaluate their progress and perform for their peers and parents at least twice during the year.
