Our Band has a double-sized classroom with carpet, but the ceilings are 7 feet tall and the amount of sound produced by these small classes is ear-shattering. We drastically need sound panels on our walls to regulate the acoustics in our small room and promote more advanced musical concepts. It is nearly impossible to have a combined band rehearsal of 90 students within a combined space designed to hold desks for 25 each. As the band director, I have 5 band classes throughout the day, plus 2 additional drum line classes in the room. Although each class is about 15 students, the students are learning to play with some incredible volume. The volume and air they use allows them to get better sounds on their instruments, but at the cost of not being able to get more advanced concepts like balancing between sections, blending each section together, or even being able to hear other individual instruments from the amount of residual noise bouncing around the room. These sound panels will allow us to continue working on sound development without sacrificing more advanced band concepts that rely on how well a student can listen to and react with other students in their music-making.
