Help Our Students Be Heard

My students need a wireless microphone system to use for concerts. This equipment will help us highlight individual talents within our group and help the students be heard.

My Students

Marching band and jazz band students are in need of a quality wireless microphone system.

Benefits of this equipment include the ability to showcase solo performers.

We have vocal soloists, sax soloists, and percussion soloists we would love to showcase.

Aging equipment and the lack of funding is hurting music programs across the county. This wireless system will allow us to highlight our students. By doing so, it will assist in the recruitment and retention of incoming band students from the middle schools.

My Project

This wireless system is critical for us to have for our concerts and performances. Without this microphone system we cannot showcase individual talents in our performance bands. The opportunity to have a solo piece in concerts provides a great motivation for our students to work hard and practice daily in preparation for their performance. My students love to write arrangements that showcase the individual talents in our band. At our final spring concert this year, their last piece was arranged by one of my students and included solos from 7 students in just one song. My students love to showcase the individual talent in our group and with your help they can do an even better job!
