The new choir room was in need of a sound system to play music for choral rehearsals and music listening. In addition, we wanted to expand the system to include recording capabilities for choral and general music students.
This grant provided a new sound and recording system which benefits student growth and learning by allowing their singing to be recorded with instant playback. With the assistance of this technology, students can now learn to identify and apply criteria such as correct vocal tone, vowel shapes, interpretation of the notation and technical accuracy to rehearse, refine, and determine when a piece is ready to perform.
This provides us with an opportunity for students to develop their critical listening, analyzing and evaluative skills.
