So, we are quarantined, right!?! WRONG! Turns out one of the amazing things about music is that we can go anywhere we want, when we want, if we allow ourselves to be transported via new sounds and experiences.

This last quarter, I will be taking you on a world tour. Around the World in 7 weeks! It is going to be fun, interesting, and new.
Listen to my examples, find some of your own, and join us for class discussion on Monday's at 11am in Teams.

I will also give SmartMusic assignments for the last 30 minutes of class. Keep those reading skills up! Many of you signed up for choir next year, so don't forget to sing to keep those voices strong. It is a skill based in muscle like just about everything else related to the body.

I miss and love everyone and hope to see you in the Teams meetings! Stay happy and healthy my dears.
