Music Room Needs Music

My students need a new amplifier for our existing sound system.

  • $197 goal

This project expired on November 5, 2012.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our school has been remodeled but the funding for needed upgrades to our audio in the music department fell short. I have brand new speakers that I cannot use because the existing amplifier is broken. I want my students to hear beautiful music on a good system. I hope you can help.

Our students have spent the last 2 years at a middle school while our school was completely remodeled.

Our school has achieved National Blue Ribbon and National Green Ribbon status. Our students achieve in the top 10% on state testing and we love our new building. While we have lots of new technology, the economy has prevented us from replacing the outdated sound system in the music room. Students are listening to great music on a boom box. We do have brand new speakers but we are unable to use them because the amplifier is broken.

My Project

Do you remember when you first heard a live concert? When you have great audio equipment you can give that experience to a student in your classroom! We have been very good stewards of the equipment we have been given. Some of our equipment is more than 20 years old. I cannot use the new speakers we have at our school because my system is too old for the newer stuff. This amplifier will be a great help because it will move us forward to getting newer equipment as time goes on. I hope we can count on your support. I know our students will be grateful each time they hear a piece of music on our sound system. Thank you.

Hearing music on a boom box is like watching TV on an older TV then watching it in HD; is there any comparison?

Our students will be able to hear wonderful music in the way it is supposed to be produced. Music is such a big part of our lives and children often do not have the chance to explore great music. To be able to hear music produced as one would hear it at a concert hall inspires and motivates a child. This project will benefit every child that enters my music room.
