Mr. Barrett from Winterset IA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sound Board Project

My students need a live sound mixing console that is up-to-date with technology and materials. A new sound mixer would allow our jazz program to flourish!

My Students

Our music program is a staple in our community. It is something that our younger students look forward to being a part of. Our Vocal Music program offers 2 concert choirs, 2 jazz choirs, a musical every year, and countless opportunities to enrich their musicality.

My students are hard-working middle class kids.

They come from a varied background. Some students have nothing until they get to school. We have a high amount of students who qualify for free or reduced priced lunch in our community. Our school is the center of our community. It is the one place our students can go for consistency: in the classroom and out of it. Just like many high schools, students fall into a "group" or a "clique". The music students are powerful and prideful in our high school.

My Project

Every single music student will be assisted by a new sound board. This unit will allow all performing groups to sound their best. Our school hosts several state-level band and choir festivals and it is important that our technology in the audio world is up-to-date. So this equipment really will support more than just the students in our school.

Our students strive to be their best in music.

This opportunity will allow them to sound like the best, making the possibility of receiving awards and being invited to Honor Festivals a reality. With two jazz choirs and two jazz bands, this mixer will give us a leg up on the competition and allow us to out-perform other schools. For every concert we have, starting with Kindergarten and ending with guest college choirs, this project will make a difference in how every voice sounds!
