Ms. Epps from El Segundo CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's HEAR it for Orchestra!

Help me give my students a quality speaker system with the "High Definition Loudspeaker." This speaker will be used daily in rehearsal and it has the power to be used while the 50 students are rehearsing.

My Students

When walking into my classroom you will see a group of highly motivated students. For my students, orchestra is often the main reason that they wake up in the morning and look forward to school.

My orchestra students have a wide variety of personalities, but every day they come together and perform the most beautiful music as an ensemble.

These students have taken tremendous ownership as the builders of our string program in the district. Together we have built a program that stems from 2nd grade through 12th grade.

My Project

Our orchestra class needs a loudspeaker to help us in daily rehearsals. While we love to be the loudest sound in the room, a loudspeaker would make a huge, positive impact on our rehearsals.

We will use the loud speaker for tuning time, for practice with a metronome and for listening activities with music recordings.

We also rehearse weekly on the stage in the auditorium. For these rehearsals we must transport all the chairs from our classroom to the stage. With the chair dolly we can easily move large stacks of chairs. This will make the set-up more efficient and thus we can spend more time practicing!
