CMS music teacher once again seeking donations

Campbellsville Middle School music teacher Jessica Floyd is once again seeking donations to help purchase some instruments for her classroom.

 

Jessica Floyd created a Donors Choose campaign last July to receive donations to buy ukuleles for CMS students.

 

And while many donations were received, her campaign isn’t yet fully funded.

 

The instruments will cost $478.

 

According to Floyd’s Donors Choose page, her students need hands-on experiences to keep them interested in learning music, and ukuleles will do just that.

 

Floyd says she plans to use ukuleles to teach chord structure in folk and pop music.

 

“I envision solo and group projects that will eventually push them beyond the basic chord structures and into learning melodies as well. It is my goal to empower students with the love of music and the joy of performing,” she wrote on her page.

 

The $478 goal for the Floyd’s fundraising campaign will purchase 10 ukuleles.

 

Any donations received through Saturday, Jan. 14, will be matched by Donors Choose.

 

The campaign will expire on Thursday, May 4.
