HeadPHONES Needed So There Is No More to GROAN About

Help me give my students the opportunity to listen to music they create and perform without mass chaos of sound at once.

My Students

My goal, as their music teacher, is to create an environment of exploration and enjoyment of learning through music and technology so all my students can be successful musicians.

I teach at a Title I school in Georgia, where the majority of the students receive free and reduced meals, sometimes their only meals are at school.

Poverty does not equal failure. Failure is not an option in my classroom. As an educator, it is my duty to help my children learn all that they can. It is my duty to ensure more than a quality education for my children; they deserve the best education possible. I feel a responsibility to give them more, to motivate them and to grant them opportunities that they would not normally receive because of their financial disadvantages.

My Project

My students need headphones so they can work on creating and performing music. Incorporating technology has been critical for years to help students learn and grow as individuals. There are many music curriculums that has a technology component where students can compose music and apply what they learn in music class.

Having these headphones will help ALL students listen on their device so it's not mass chaos with sound.

Listening and composing music are two of the many music teaching standards that have to be executed in the music class. By having these headphones, it would help students succeed without the loud noises coming from multiple devices at once.
