Dear Parents and Guardians,
June is going to be a great month in the music room! Students will be working on songwriting, singing in parts, playing a wide range of traditional and modern band instruments, composing, improvising, and performing in a variety of settings. We will continue to incorporate theater, movement, singing and instrumental work into the curriculum. We would love to have parents volunteer for our Parent-Teacher Events Committee to help plan and facilitate school wide events. If you are interested in participating, please reach out to me through email or make an appointment to see me. The committee will meet every Tuesday from 2:45-3:15pm in the cafeteria.
I am looking forward to a fabulous month of learning with our students!
