Mr. B. from Millbrook AL is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Recording to Hit Record Heights!

My students need the Zoom H6 digital recorder so that we can record our music rehearsals and hear what needs to be improved.

My Students

We are a diverse 7th and 8th grade Beginning and Intermediate band that is active in the community playing at concerts, football games, and parades.

We are totally self-funded.

We receive no funding from our school system. The instruments and even the chairs that we have are hand me down instruments from the high school band.

The band students at my school are like most band students, we are the real melting pot of any school because we accept everyone! Your donation can NOT be overstated!

My Project

The Zoom H6 digital recorder will help our band students in many ways. The ability to record our music rehearsals will give me as the teacher and our students the opportunity to hear exactly what we sound like, which will allow us to improve immeasurably.

Recording our rehearsals will allow us to critique musical performance elements such as tone (do we produce a pleasant sound), precision (are we playing notes together correctly), and balance (can we hear all the parts of the music).

I got the idea to post this as a project from talking to other very successful music teachers in our area who utilize this technology for tremendous results.
