Mrs. Shaw from Springfield IL is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Need More Sound

My students need more wireless microphones so they can make a bigger sound. These students love to perform. However, they are now performing in bigger areas and need more sound equipment.

My Students

My young students love to sing and dance. However, these young performers don't always get a chance to show off their incredible talent. Our music department has really improved over the years and have many chances to perform. However, they are in need of more sound equipment due to the variety of locations they perform in and number of students that are in the performances. Sometimes the location requires more microphones and sound equipment so the students can be heard during their performance.

These students love to perform, but come from low income families so having enough money in the budget to buy extra things for our program, like sound equipment, is very difficult.

As an educator, I love to give students many different opportunities to perform. These students love to perform for their school, friends, family and community.

My Project

Next school year we will be focusing on performing in larger areas and venues. By having our own wireless microphones that will help the student voices be heard. Currently, we have wired microphones and a couple of wireless microphones. However, having the wireless microphones will enable our students to be heard in larger rooms and wireless microphones enable students to be more flexible on stage. We will also be able to bring more music to our community and outreach programs.

First, my students will learn to use another piece of sound equipment.

As the students learn and grow, they will not only learn how to sing and dance, but also learn how to use a variety pieces of sound equipment.
