New Keyboard for Music Class

My students need a USB powered MIDI controller.

This project expired on July 18, 2008.

I teach music, grades 9-12, in a large suburban school district with many very musically talented students.

My music technology class does not have sufficient technology to adequately fulfill the needs of the course. The students thoroughly enjoy creating music with the technology we have, and would like to expand that desire with additional supplies.

In order to solve this problem, expanding our music technology equipment is needed. One specific need is a USB keyboard. Through using this keyboard along with other music technology equipment, students will be able learn more about composition through hands-on projects.

Through your help, students musicianship and creativity will be greatly enhanced. It will also make it possible for them to understand how to create their own original music. Because of this opportunity, the students may one day have their own music heard throughout the world.

Grades 9-12

This project will reach 30 students.
