What Are The Dimensions of Band Risers and Band Shells?

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Feb 20, 2019 1:30:00 PM

You're probably wondering what the dimensions of band risers and band shells are. After all, you need to make sure that your performers fit on the equipment as your number one priority, with the stage setup as your close second. We agree that it's the first step when purchasing a set. To help out, we have our seated band risers and band shells to help break down the dimensions.

Valentine's Day Music Class Ideas

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Feb 6, 2019 3:30:00 PM

Valentine's Day for elementary school music and theater students can be fun. They're still exchanging Valentine's Day cards and excited to pass them out. The boys think that girls have cooties or they have a "girlfriend" at school. The two dynamics are funny to watch in the classroom.

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.

4 Halloween Music Activities for the Classroom

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Oct 24, 2018 3:00:00 PM

I remember my music classes in elementary school. We would walk to another part of the school where it was decorated with the most fun and interesting creative projects. It was one of my favorite parts of the day because we got to walk around the whole school to get to music class. Meaning we could find our friends in other classes by peeking our heads in classes along the way.

Making a Difference in Small Spaces

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Sep 26, 2018 1:30:00 PM

We find that a lot of people that come to us for solutions on staging equipment work in small spaces. What we mean by small spaces are that they're music directors for a small - medium sized, specific group of people. They lead a choir, band, or other performance group. They may not be conducting a big orchestra with fame and fortune, but they believe in that group of 4th and 5th graders that want to learn all the words to their new choir song.
