Project Title: DMS Bands Recording Equipment Project
Teacher: Derek Ziemer
School: Discovery Middle School
Students Impacted: Over 300 band students in grades 6-8
Amount Funded: $3,500
The Band Department will build an audio recording setup for the band room at DMS. This will allow the bands to record their ensembles in real-time during class. Students will then be able to review and reflect upon their performance during class to generate ideas and strategies on how to improve/refine their performance. This equipment also provides the band with opportunities to collaborate in new and exciting ways such as connecting with other bands, composers, directors, and clinicians from around the world.
