My Students

Our school has a rich musical history. We are trying to update our facilities.Our students are also working very hard on their individual performance responsibilities. We are using technology more and more in the class room so the benefit of having a celing mount for our projection system wll allow every student to participate and learn from each other without the distraction of clutter. We have traditional instruments in our instrumental program and a growing choral and guitar program as well. Our students strive to become the best musicians they can and deserve the best equipment possible to help them do this.

My Project

Currently we have wires and cords going everywhere when we use our projecton systems. These ceiling mounts will allow us to use our projection system more easily with fewer cables and cords to get in the way. Our school has a rich musical history. With limited class and rehearsal time, updated technology and the ability to project documents and music can have a huge impact on quality instruction. With large ensemble class sizes, having cords and cables spread about can be unsafe; mounting the projectors will allow us a safer class environment and make it easier to access our technology on a regular basis. This will positively impact students' learning environment and help us use our class time more efficiently.
