Care for Our Guitars

My students need a guitar rack to safely hold our classroom guitars when students are not practicing or performing.

My Students

The population range from poor to middle class within the school and the school district. The school is the oldest African American high school and has a proud and supportive alumni who continue to assist with keeping up with the school's integrity and tradition. The students are very tech savvy and are very open-minded in learning foreign music. Students who have been placed in some of the music classes offered at the school have expressed their interest in music technology. The students seek lessons that are more engaging through technology based music instruction. Students in the fine arts program are also students who seek immediate feedback. For example, SmartMusic software records and grades their performance. This software helps student engaged in sight reading exercises.

My Project

The guitar rack will store our guitars when they are not in use. This will prevent damage to guitars and create space in the classroom since we are very limited on space and storage. This will make a difference for our students because we will be able to prevent damage to guitars so that we can have enough guitars for students to practice and perform on. The rack is sturdy and prevents scuff marks on the floor and on the wall. This rack also provides organization and ease of access for guitar students because the students will be able to find their guitar easily and have their own section in the classroom.
