Dear Parents,

Although every year is special in its own way, students can always expect to be exposed to the rudiments of music learning within the framework of the state standards. Once again, I plan to engage students in experiencing music in various styles. Lessons are carefully designed to help develop my students' overall literacy, skills and creativity. Activities in music class will continue to range from singing, playing instruments, moving, reading, creating and listening.

There will be opportunities for the students to perform this year for the winter concert, special assemblies and stepping-up ceremonies. The school will continue to enjoy partnerships with various arts organizations. Selected classes can also expect to go on some fun-filled music related trips.

This year the third and fourth grade will be learning to play the recorder. There will be three enrichment programs offered in the morning - violin ensemble, chorus and bell choir. Students can also join after-school music programs such as keyboard, guitar and karaoke singing. My objective is for all our students to have a successful year and a lifetime of musical enjoyment.

If you have any questions or need to contact me for any reason, please feel free to e-mail
