Irwin Jacobs Elementary School

Irwin Jacobs Elementary School in New Bedford, Massachusetts, is an innovative community school invested in the development of the whole child. Our school focuses on the diverse learning styles and strengths of our students in a project-based learning environment. The students of Irwin Jacobs Elementary School are diverse, creative, and inspiring young musicians. We have three hundred seventy-three children, and most of our students do not receive outside music instruction, so the opportunity that Keys of Inspiration is presenting to my students is exceptional. When I surveyed my students earlier this year and asked what instrument they would like to learn, the majority of my students chose the piano. They did not even know they will be receiving a full piano lab! Keys of Inspiration will allow my students to have the foundation to experience a creative outlet that they can continue in their futures.
