Composer of the Month

Each month, we focus on one famous composer.  Students learn that a composer is someone who writes music.

This month, we have been listening to music composed by Mr. John Williams.  Students are enjoying making connections to music they already know as we listen to music from Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Home Alone, E.T. and more!

Here is one video we've watched to listen to John Williams:

Coming up, we'll watch a short recording session with John Williams.

Music Teacher Appreciation

I have some wonderful students.  Lots of them, actually.  I am so blessed to be able to work with incredible children and teach a subject that I truly enjoy. 

However, if it weren't for the music teachers I've had throughout my life, I wouldn't be where I am today. 

National Teacher Appreciation Week is next week, May 6-10.  To honor music teachers that have helped shape me over the years, my students helped me create this "Thank You, Music Teachers!" video that gives thanks to my own music teachers. 

Teachers, keep teaching!  And truly, thank you for all you've done and are doing.
