Dear Parent/Guardian,  

December is going to be an amazing month of learning in the music room!  We will be preparing for our annual Holidays Around the World celebration, taking place on Wednesday, December 20th.  More details on the show will be sent home soon.  PreK and Kindergarten students will work on using different voices and steady beat.  1st and 2nd grade students will work on identifying and singing different pitches in tune.  3rd graders will be working on 3 finger piano songs and chords.  4th and 5th grade students will continue working on creating a modern band ensemble.   

Please reach out to me with any questions at
