Sound system

My students need an upgraded sound system in their band room for viewing their concerts, marching performances, and individual class projects with the latest technology.

My Students

A large part of music education is reflection - reflection on the group's work, on an individual's work, both from a visual and audio perspective. Students do not have an adequate representation of the quality of their work without the latest technology in the classroom to view/listen to their work.

There are 200 students in our band program, in a school of just over 900.

They are all ages (9th-12th grades), come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds, and have a wide range of musical skill and competence. But they come together as a team, and are taught to place value on the group rather than the individual.

My Project

These upgraded sound system devices will last years, impacting hundreds of students that enter our band room. Students will have the ability to both watch and listen to their concerts and marching performances on high quality equipment, giving them a great representation of what they sounded like. Students will also be able to use this equipment in smaller classes, and before/after school. This equipment will expose them to artists and music without technology limitations.

Music is a lifelong skill.Any tools provided to help students appreciate not only their own contributions to a music ensemble, but also appreciate the countless contributions made by both amateurs and professionals around the world, will make an impact on their learning.

Studies have shown that students in music also excel academically and socially, and this equipment will only further their enjoyment of music education.
