Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach strings at an elementary school of arts, and my students are learning to play violin, viola, and cello. They are extremely enthusiastic players. I am trying to encourage them to be better listeners as well. I have accumulated an eclectic collection of music consisting of bluegrass, jazz, blues, and 20th Century symphonic music, as well as the major composers of Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Impressionism, all of which I think the children should be exposed to in at least small doses. I have a small CD player, and I use this for playing recordings for them. I also use the CD player for playing accompaniments to exercises that they play in class to help keep them together, keeping a steady beat. I think it would be very beneficial to my students if they had something better on which to listen to recordings. They don't get the full impact of the music when listening to it on the current system I have in my classroom.
