Benefits of Going to Music Class

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Jan 16, 2019 1:30:00 PM

I was always a good student. I went to class and listened to the teacher. I even helped other students that needed help grasping the quadratic formula - math was my best subject. However, not all students have that same mindset. Most students want to know the why behind what they're learning and why they have to sit through a teacher explaining something they're "never going to use". We've all heard that before, or even thought it ourselves in our work seminars.

Low Maintenance and Safety = Alpha Fold and Roll Riser

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Dec 5, 2018 3:00:00 PM

It’s our lightweight stage riser that is cost effective. No tools, transport dollies, or extra hands are needed. Just roll it to the event location and unfold it. While the Fold and Roll Riser is in the transport position, the low profile provides better visibility over the top and its low center of gravity helps prevent tripping. Nylon bushings at pivot points keep the decks aligned, level, and safe throughout the life of the riser. The cantilever folding mechanism aids in lifting, so very little weight is actually lifted, minimizing the risk of back strain.
