Mrs. N. from Queens Village NY is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Record Company

My audio recording project needs a sound card.

  • $227 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My students want to start a record company! My students have asked for a recording class, and this is the first year that we have offered it. They would like the format to resemble a real record company. For this to happen, we need resources! Right now, we have almost nothing, and what we do have I have purchased out of pocket, but it is not enough!

My students show an interest in and talent for writing lyrics, composing music, and creating music on computers. We have very limited supplies, however, including an incomplete recording setup.

The first thing we need is a real sound card so that we can hook our existing sound board up to our computer. This will allow students to learn about multi-track recording, and essential skill in modern music studios.

Your donation will make it possible for my students to realize their creativity as well as learn useful skills in music industry and business, including sound production, music reading and writing, and business communication.
