For 70 years, Wenger Corporation has been proud to support music educators and their students by developing innovative products and solutions that improve and enrich the music education experience. Wenger innovations range from a simple sousaphone chair to a sophisticated active acoustics systems. All our products are developed to maximize the value of the dollars invested in them.
We realize funding is usually tight, especially for technology products like our VAE® Rehearsal System. Today, many grants exist to implement technology into classrooms, including music education classrooms. Also, most districts earmark specific budgets for technology projects. Wenger wants to help you start your journey toward obtaining the necessary funding for the products and technology you need.
We have also included, on our website, a sample funding proposal that outlines the many benefits of active acoustics technology. This proposal includes information that could help any funding request, whether from school/district funds or outside grant sources. This document also reflects input from two music educators who already use this technology every day. We hope their enthusiasm helps fuel your own passion and commitment on this funding journey. We also have compiled a list of resources (websites and articles) to get you started.
We’re glad to offer any assistance we can, including by sharing what we’ve learned from other music educators. Obtaining funding is a dynamic subject that will require study and perseverance on your part; the results will be worth it! Good luck!
