Music class is a time for creativity, fun, and self-expression.
My students attend an urban school, where 95% of students live at or below the poverty line.
Our students are motivated learners that come from diverse living situations. Our families see the school as a safe place to gather, learn, and find support. The students love music, and are glad to have it during the school day.
Students will LOVE to sing into the microphone and hear their own voices soaring above the music! I have found that amplification encourages vocal creativity, and this portable PA will be a perfect solution for the "traveling" music teacher, as I will be able to take it room to room. The PA will allow the class to be more student-driven. Sometimes a kid wants to be a leader in the classroom, but a soft, shy voice might make that dream impossible. With a microphone, even the shyest student can be inspired to lead.
Students may have seen a famous pop star using a microphone, but have never had that experience themselves.
The portable PA puts the "rock star" experience within reach. They will have so much FUN with this!
