Hi,

I can't help you directly but I think if you call Sweetwater Music 800 222 4700 and be right up front about needing a little info for school that they will point you in then right direction.

Do a seach using midi controllers. There are midi controllers to match just about every musical instrument. I use a wind midi controller (yamaha WX5 ). "Electric" drum kits are midi controlers. Midi sequencers are midi controlers for people who play no instrument what so ever. www.synthony.com www.musiciansfriend.com
and so on......

As well as wind and drum controllers, there are guitar controllers, such as the Roland GR units.
Computers are often midi controllers. If you can download a .mid file and play it on your computer, there is some kind of controller in there. Midi can also be used to sync machines together. Example, I can match my Lexicon effects unit bpm to the bpm of a song on my computer so that the echoes and delays and such play in time to my song. I can use midi to change effects midsong etc.

Try the Synth Zone MIDI Controller links listing at http://www.synthzone.com/ctrlr.htm

That should provide lots of info on non-keyboard controllers.
