My students need a speaker system for our classroom and for our community performances!
"Unwearied then were Durin's folk; beneath the mountains music woke. The harpers harped, the minstrels sang, and at the gates the trumpets rang." (J.R.R. Tolkien) We need speakers so my "wandering minstrels" can hear music and be heard when performing!
My students attend a K-8 urban magnet school.
We are an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School and encourage inquiry and questioning of how things work and why. The arts are a much-valued part of their education by administration, parents, and staff. Students in K-5 have general music twice a week. Middle school students have an option of being in orchestra or world music. All of my students are energetic and playful, thoughtful and inquiring. They are open to many genres of music from around the world and throughout history. We learn about music by singing, playing, dancing, creating, and improvising! My students LOVE to share what we learn in music through discussing, writing, and PERFORMING!
All of my classes have been singing, dancing, playing instruments, creating, and exploring! We are ready to share some of those experiences with our parents and out in the community! Many of our community opportunities are in places which don't have sound systems, so one of the requested SPEAKERS would provide us with a way to be heard. Soloists could have microphones and singers/instrumentalists would have accompaniment tracks. Accompaniment tracks are awesome when you don't have access to a keyboard. We can be modern-day minstrels, sharing our music with the community. The other requested SPEAKER will allow us to wirelessly play music from our iPads. If one group creates a loop on a rhythm app, they can, in a tap of the screen, have it playing on this speaker. If a student creates a melody on a song app, he/she can easily play it for the whole class to hear. Sharing in this way is the epitome of a "learning community".
After all of our hard work learning and creating wonderful songs and pieces, we want to have the opportunity to share with other students, parents, and the community.
Our bluetooth speaker will helps us be portable in the classroom and the lightweight yet dynamic cube speaker will allow us to easily go anywhere to perform, turning my students into "wandering minstrels"!!Read More
