Clarke MS Musicians Play a Philanthropic Note
The National Association for Music Education designated the month of March as Music in Our Schools Month, a time of year when music education becomes the focus of schools across the nation. The celebration continues to grow each year, reaching more and more students, teachers, musicians and music supporters. Schools and communities throughout the country and overseas celebrate the month with concerts and other activities in their school districts.
As part of this celebration, music students at W.T. Clarke Middle School took part in the Music in Our Schools Month Practice-A-Thon. Students who participated in the event documented their daily practice throughout the month. Sponsors pledged an amount of their choice for each minute the students practiced, and all proceeds were donated to a local charity.
“The Practice-A-Thon is a wonderful way to strengthen students’ practice habits while encouraging empathy and charity,” said W.T. Clarke Chairperson of Music Kelly Gelfer. “And it’s a wonderful opportunity for them to make a personal contribution that makes a difference in their community. As Helen Keller said, ‘Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.’”
In addition to daily practice, W.T. Clarke music students have also been sharing their music throughout the hallways and the school with weekly performances, tutoring sessions and rehearsals.
W.T. Clarke Middle School ensembles raised $815.75 through the 2018 Practice-A-Thon. Ensembles tallied a total of 72,000 minutes of practice time.
Funds raised have been earmarked for Clarke’s Change for Change Club. Students will select a charity of their choice for the donation in the near future.
Matthew Hauser, a member of Clarke’s sixth-grade band, was the top individual fundraiser among students with $106.75.
Katherene Qi, a member of the eighth-grade orchestra, completed the most minutes of practice time during the drive with 3,242.
Congratulations to all of the W.T. Clarke Middle School musicians and teachers who participated in the drive! Great job!
