Music to Our Ears

My students need a portable boombox.

My Students

My after school musical theater program is full of students who are ready to sing and dance at the drop of a hat!

These student work hard to learn music, choreography, and acting, and they also stage a full length Disney musical.

My students are ridiculously talented and have performed for thousands of people across the country. These kids work hard fundraising all year in order to travel to performances at elite functions. The motivation and drive that these students possess would make anyone proud to know them!

My Project

My students will use the boombox I am requesting while rehearsing in our school hallways, library, and gym. As we do not have a dedicated rehearsal space, portability is very important in sound equipment. My students will learn choreography, pitch, tone, and lyrics while listening to this boombox. It is a critical piece of our musical theater performance.

This project will create successful, confident performers in our community.

These students will benefit from this basic sound piece each rehearsal. These kids will be beyond thankful that you provided music to their ears!
