Sponsor a Student – Bob Moog Foundation Student Outreach Program

For over a year, our super volunteer Dave Hamilton has been going in to the public schools and bringing Theremins, Moog signal processors (moogerfoogers), microphones and oscilloscopes in to elementary school classes. Dave’s sessions with the kids has engaged and enchanted their sense of curiosity and understanding as he exposes them to electronic music, and some of the simple science behind the sounds they are hearing. The children react with great enthusiasm, some later writing “Mr. Dave” about how much they enjoyed the sonic playground that he created for them.

Part of the mission of the Bob Moog Foundation is to educate and inspire children through the power and possibilities of electronic music. We want to make sure that the Moog legacy lives on in a very special way through the children — by inspiring them to explore, create and innovate the realm of electronic music. As such, we aim to amp up our  Student Outreach Program by exposing children to electronic music all year long.
