Mr. Ernst from Hightstown NJ is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Play Like a Rock Star!

My students need these headphones to be able to hear themselves play their electric bass and/or electric guitar through our headphone amplifiers like they were designed to be heard.

My Students

Our school is a very diverse school with over 62 different languages spoken at home. The students I teach in all four grade levels bring a wide range of experiences and culture to my music classes every day.

We all benefit greatly by learning music from the different cultures represented and enjoy getting to share those songs with the other students in the class.

My students take the lessons and experiences learned in my class and apply them to their own academic and family life.

My Project

Having these headphones will enable my students in my classes to hear their electric guitar and electric basses clearer which will lead to increased focus and learning.

Being able to hear themselves also increases their focus on learning because the students sound like they are actually playing through huge amplifiers.

The students are able to listen to and play along with songs on their phones which plug into the headphone amplifiers as well. When the students hear what the guitars sound like through the headphone amplifiers they can see themselves onstage playing these songs along with the band. They do sound like rock stars!
