Speaker Seeker

Help me give my students these speakers which will allow our class to hear the cds played on our new Sony 5 disc CD player/changer. However, without the Vari V1015 15 in. Active Loudspeakers the player is silent.

My Students

Our new adventure has begun! Our school district is located in the Arkansas Delta, across the bridge from Memphis, TN. The majority of our students come from lower socio-economic backgrounds and their opportunities are limited.

Our district has started new magnet schools.

My particular magnet school is a Visual and Performing Arts school and I am the music teacher. I teach students K - 6.

I want to create an environment that will enthuse and excite my students, especially that child who is uncertain of what to expect from VPA!

My Project

We need your help to bring our CD player to life by "connecting" us to some powerful speakers!

While many tunes are online or streamed, there are still many uses for the CD player in the music classroom.

Many of our older pieces of music are not online.

Rehearsals are much more fluid when a CD player is available. But, without the speakers the CD player won't be helpful.

Help us continue to make and learn awesome music with the purchase of at least one of these speakers. TWO would be awesome; but one is a GREAT start. Help us keep music alive!
