We are thrilled to announce that Lowe’s has awarded Heth-Washington Elementary School $5000.00 for their project, Melodic Music for All. The Heth-Washington grant application that Mrs. Kincaid submitted last Septmeber was based on the goal of opening students’ hearts and minds through music by providing xylophones, metallophones, and glockenspiel instruments to be used to accompany singing, creating original music through composition and improvisation. Mrs. Kincaid looks forward to creating music with the Heth-Washington community in the music classroom with students and at future music performances. We will be starting on this project right away by ordering the instruments and getting them into the hands of students as soon as possible.
“Receiving the funds to purchase instruments means exposing students to their beautiful timbres and enabling them to bring melodic concepts to life in the music classroom at Heth-Washington Elementary School in a way that the students at the school have never experienced. Our students and school will greatly benefit from this grant. We wish to thank our friends at Lowe’s for generously supporting this important project,” says music teacher, Mrs. Raneigh Kincaid.
