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 2015-2016 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 "THE LION KING" in November, 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!!!
Grades 3 through 6 can enjoy a variety of music games on the following site. Some games can be played with two or more players:

ELEMENTARY DRAMA: 'Thank You' parents for your cooperation with the "Lion King" auditions. We appreciate all the students who auditioned for this production to be held in November 2015 at the Middle School. We will have a 'green and a 'gold' cast. Students in grades 3, 4, 5, and 6 who want to sing in "The Lion King" chorus will sign up in August of 2015 when the new school year begins. The cast, actors and actresses, will always have practice on Mondays and Tuesdays from 3:30-5:30, and the chorus will practice on Tuesdays only from 3:30-5:30 in Mr. Balog's music room in September and the first week of October. Beginning October 19th, the cast and chorus members will begin rehearsals at the Middle School every Monday and Tuesday until November 16th and 17th (those are dress rehearsal days the 16th and 17th of November with longer practices, times will be announced) from 3:30 pm until 5:30 pm. Busing will be provided. All cast and chorus are to be picked up by parents/guardians by 5:30 PM. More details to follow during the Summer months. FIRST PRACTICE FOR THE CAST MEMBERS IS MONDAY AUGUST 31, 2015 AT THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL (don't forget to bring a snack). First drama chorus practice is Tuesday September 1st, 2015 in Mr. Balog's music room (don't forget your snack). Parents/Guardians, please pick up students from rehearsals by 5:30 pm on practice days, as you are responsible for their transportation home.
