The 7th graders have made some recordings of their progress in World Music Drumming. They are available to listen to RIGHT HERE! :)
Holiday Concert info is posted and a letter is going home this week, which is also posted. Please check the Concert page.
I found an interesting article about the use of technology today. This is reprinted from "Face the Facts USA"
By now parents should be hearing lots of practice noise as our HOLIDAY CONCERT is upcoming! December 12, 2012 at 7:30 pm plan to join us for sounds of the recorders, two choruses, the concert band and the jazz/rock ensemble! Band is now meeting twice a week as a full-group and one lesson a week. Daily home practice is important! The band PRACTICE PAGES have helpful links to some of the songs to listen and play-along at home.
The band lesson schedule for November has been posted and please note that I have revised the groups. Please check which "letter" your group is. If you are unsure you can email me at email@example.com
Due to the unexpected days off, we are rescheduling our Fall Band Party for Tuesday, Nov. 13th at lunch/recess. Please order or bring your regular lunch. In order to be fully compliant with the revised school lunch program, Mrs. Manion will provide a hot pretzel as an additional snack item. (Sorry! No pizza allowed at lunchtime. We are going to plan a pizza party for a different time and date. ) We will have a slide show of the AHS Band Day and watch a movie and do some games!
This blog will be used for class updates, lists of assignments, links to music and technology events in our area and other news from Mrs. Manion's World. It is designed as an aid and may not be up-to-date. It does not replace attention in class.
