My Students

I work for a choice school in Detroit. With so many schools being forced to cut programs, music is becoming less a part of public life.

My students deserve to have a good music program and I want to provide them with every opportunity.

I have created something new and organic for my students. In order to keep that goal moving, I will need some supplies and instruments. My students are already talented. What they need is an opportunity to make music and someone who can show them how. We have the ability to change the relationship between our young people and music. Rather than simply consuming music, students can appreciate, create, and revel in it.

My Project

These JBL Flip 4 speakers will provide a surround sound experience for my students and clubs. Last year in music class I had only two options for listening to music or videos. First, there were the speakers on the smart boards. These would vary from room to room, yes I'm a cart teacher, and often didn't work. That left me with option 2, my Bose Mini Link II. This was very reliable but with only one speaker it had limitations. I needed a very quiet room for it to be heard, and I couldn't use it as a teaching tool since it just didn't provide enough volume to be used with instruments or even vocals.

The Flip 4 speakers can be linked to create one speaker system with multiple speakers.

This will allow me to create a more active classroom by playing music that can be heard over the guitars, keyboards, and vocals. My after school music club, Garage Band, will be able to play with (and hear) the music that we are working on. With ease of use, portability, and long playability, these speakers will be an asset for my music program.
