Play in Tune!

Help me give my students tuners to learn about pitch and tuning. We need tuners to help teach our ears how to listen and play in tune together.

My Students

Our school has a large music department with three music teachers; we offer band, strings, and chorus. Our students are passionate about making music!

Students enjoy playing in our large groups, participating in chamber music, performing assemblies at our elementary feeder schools, and performing for our family and friends.

They are high performing students and are always looking for their next challenge.

My Project

After playing in band and orchestra remotely last year, our ears need a tune up to play together again.

These tuners will allow each of my students to attach a device to their individual instruments.

Students will be able to see if they are in tune as they play.

This is a challenging task to teach to middle school students. The tuners will help my students learn how to tune their instruments and play better in tune. This will help us create beautiful music as we return to concert performances.
