My Students

My students are not just kids; they are musicians. The love and excitement for music that they bring to my class are​ wonderfully astounding. To say that my students love music would be a serious understatement.

The passion for music that my students show does more than impress me; it inspires me!

Because they are such an inspiration, I want to give them every opportunity possible to bring music to life. These students want to grow as independent musicians, and I want to give them the resources to do that. These kids deserve it!

My Project

It is not uncommon to hear children singing rhymes that they have learned or even making up their own songs. Children love to sing, and they enjoy sharing their songs with others. Their voices, however, are not as strong as adult voices and require amplification.

My students are highly enthusiastic about performing; they put every ounce of energy they have into giving a great performance!

I want to give my students the very best chance to perform well, and I want to give our audiences the very best quality of sound in performance. These microphones will help to better amplify my students' beautiful voices for all to hear with clarity.
