  • GOALS:

    My goal is that each student enjoys becoming as skillful a musician as he or she is able. 

    Whether we have the potential to make our living making music or we just like to sing in the shower, we all have musical talent to develop and enjoy.

  • WE MAKE MUSIC!

    Using our voices, our bodies and lots and lots of instruments. 

    We play music by different composers and we create our own music! 

    We dance and create movement to express how music makes us feel.

    and

    We sing songs dance and play music games from around the world.
