Mr. Suehiro from Phoenix AZ is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

I Can Hear Clearly Now!

My students need a loudspeaker during marching band practice so they can receive feedback on their progress during rehearsals.

My Students

Band is about so much more than just band. To my students, band is a safe place to be themselves without fear of judgement or criticism. To them, band is a place where being wrong and making mistakes is celebrated, because failure is our greatest teacher. They revel in the messy realm of the rehearsal process, and they enjoy the pathway to success as much as the destination itself.

Our student-musicians are passionately curious about the world.

As they get to know each other over four years, they find that they are brought together through their differences as well as their common bonds. They are empathetic, communicative, and they hold themselves to high standards.

Our school community is diverse, and many of our families struggle financially. What we lack in funding, we make up for in commitment, perseverance, and an unyielding desire to send beauty and truth into the world.

My Project

On the football field, it's tough for students to hear constructive feedback from the staff without proper amplification. And it puts unnecessary strain on the teachers' voices to have to shout to students half a football field away. Having these roadblocks often creates opportunities for miscommunication and frustration to creep into the rehearsal process, which isn't good for anyone in the long run. It means we have to work harder than we should to get things done.

We need a way to communicate in rehearsals, especially when we are outside.

Having a loudspeaker will ensure that rehearsals run more efficiently and that everyone is happy at the end of the evening, resulting in a more polished product that the students and school community can be proud of.
