Divas in Training

My students need a set of recording microphones, a stand, and cables for a recording studio set up.

I teach in an urban area where music is king. I teach general music, guitar, and theater classes in a public high school that does not have much of a budget for me to expose these students to current technology in music.

These kids have a great love of music, especially creating it. I would love to give them the opportunity to create and record their own, but I'm missing pieces.

All I need is some microphones, some cables, and something to stand them in. Giving these less advantaged students an opportunity to be their own "American Idol" will be something they will never forget. It will also teach them valuable lessons in music, math, science, language arts, and almost any other discipline you can think of.

Help from you will make sure my students have the most amazing musical adventure of their high school careers. This project can not get off the ground without a few simple pieces!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
