Mrs. Garcia from Milwaukee WI is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Can You 'Ear' Me Now?

My students need headphones so they can hear their own creativity - and also keep it to themselves :) Koss is a local company and their headphones have a lifetime warranty.

My Students

My students are talented, outgoing, and hard working. They are adaptable because they have to be. I am the proud band director at an inner-city urban arts high school where my job also includes the non-performing side of things: music theory. Our students have never known a world with out the internet, but our 21st century requirements have outpaced our 20th century setting.

Access to technology is critical as we strive to build a community of musicians who can flourish in the 21st Century.

Learning to perform and see yourself as a musician happens quickly if you have a 21st century musician's tools.

My Project

Our music students use an aging piano lab that has 30 pianos and only a few sets of working headphones. Because our lab is located between two social studies classrooms, we can't play the pianos out loud, so students without headphones can't play at all.

Koss Headphones is a local Milwaukee company with a lifetime guarantee on their merchandise.

If my students had access to quality headphones, every child would be able to play the piano and make music every day. With over 140 students using this lab daily, the lifetime guarantee will ensure that the headphone supply is consistent.
