Welcome to my web page! Please check my classroom calendar for the drama rehearsal and performance schedule. I am looking forward to a very successful 2014-2015 school year with my students. I'll be teaching general music classes to grades Pre-K through Grade 6. I also direct the Grade 6 Rockin' Ranger Ensemble. I'll be directing the Elementary Drama Production of "Peter Pan" in October, and my other coaching duties include the High School Co-ed Rifle Team.
Here is the link for the "Young Person's Guide To The Orchestra" game at the Carnegie Hall website:
We've used this site in class to introduce and reinforce our concepts about orchestral instruments.
Enjoy the site and the games!!!
This Year's Drama Production is "Peter Pan."
We had 133 auditions in grades 1-5. Thank you for your support!
Performances tentatively scheduled for the third full week of October 2014. Performances will tentatively be at the High school.
The words and music are now on my web page for practicing the "Peter Pan" songs at home!
ATTENTION!!! NEW UPDATES FOR DRAMA FOR 2014-2015 SCHOOL YEAR. PLEASE READ BELOW AND VIEW MY CALENDAR FOR AUGUST, SEPTEMBER, AND OCTOBER OF 2014 FOR IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING REHEARSALS AND PERFORMANCES.
