Mr. Rosales from Gardena CA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Band Needs Mobility

My students need wireless guitar systems because standard guitar cords get stepped on, stretched and broken. These wireless systems also allow for movement in performances.

My Students

My students come from an area where they face daily challenges. They are English learners who have had a slow start due to language barriers and tough socio-economic conditions. This hasn't dampened their enthusiasm for learning. They enjoy hands-on learning and love to participate in the arts.

I started up an after school modern band class to facilitate music participation in my class and also in other classes school wide.

These students go nuts for this class! I have noticed a big boost in enthusiasm and a sustained connection to our school and learning. The work that these students have put in has amazed me and humbled me.

My Project

Thanks to many generous donations, my modern band class is becoming much more complete in it's equipment. We now have guitars, amplifiers, a keyboard, a PA system, a drum set, and microphones and microphone stands.

Now we're looking to fine tune our equipment and make improvements to our existing technology.

This project includes wireless guitar systems which will eliminate the need for standard guitar cords. Standard cords are notorious for failing due to the wear and tear that the guitarists put on them. They are stepped on, stretched and bent by well meaning little rock stars.

Unfortunately, these cords just won't stand up to this unintentional abuse and fail at the most inopportune times. These wireless systems will be a great addition to the band!
