Help My Students Hear!

In the past three years we have gone from zero to one hundred here in the Richmond High School Music department. We now have a jazz band that is competeing, new marching band uniforms for our now forty-five piece band, and a class specifically for freshmen who took band in middle school. With all these strides we still have a long way to go and new challeneges as we reach new heights.

Now we are at a point where the goal is to upgrade our band room and make it a modern music learning enviroment. When it was built six decades ago it was designed very well bout acoustically and practically for a music program. The room is very "live" and seems to have been designed more of a choir program. When we have forty students playing in there it gets very hard to hear. 

This gofundme will tackle the two primary pitfalls of our space. The rear corners of the room are flat surfaces that cause sound to bounce between them creating a mess of frequencies. When sound builds up in this way it becomes very difficult for the brain to process what is coming into the ear.  To help contain the sound we will put sound treatment in these back corners. 

The other piece of this is to purchase speakers that would double as both classroom listening speakers and a pa for us to use with jazz band. Our current pa system is HUGE and from the 1980s. Modern speaker technology is relatively cheap, light, and reproduces sound at  a very clear level. 

Thanks for supporting not just our current students but students for years to come at RHS!
