Mr. S. from Fresno CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Recording Studio Equipment For Our Soundproof Room

My students need 1 Alesis USB Recording Kit with 2 microphones to use in our soundproof classroom recording studio, 2 pop filters for students to clearly record their voices, and 2 headphones with boom mics to clearly hear and record their music and voices.

I teach 8th grade students computers and technology. My coworker and I work very hard to provide unique technology instruction and opportunities for our students. We are a middle school with equally mixed races of students. About 67% of our students are designated as high poverty.

We often have our students enter festivals and competitions which require a high quality of recording. We just designed a sound proofed room that will be ready for the students in a few weeks. This is an excellent opportunity to provide the missing piece.

The only part that is missing from our soundproof recording room is the digital recording kit. We have the soundproof recording room and computer to run the missing piece for our students to record their voices and instruments in the highest quality we can produce.

This missing piece will allow us to have 2 microphones with stands, and a digital audio workstation with speakers to plug into our computer. The headphones with boom mics, along with the screen guard will allow us to capture clear recordings with no background noise. Imagine the possibilities our bright, motivated students can produce.
