Dear Parents and Students,
CCUSD schools remain closed. There are supplemental education resources for all students, however, teachers are not in the schools and will not be available through March 27th. We are working with the Arizona Department of Education to understand more about school closures and our next steps. In the meantime, you may want to visit the two web pages linked below, one for COVID 19 updates, and one for at-home supplemental education resources. We will continue to provide updates as often as possible. We appreciate your patience during this unprecedented time.
Welcome to Lone Mountain's "journey through music". I'm so pleased to be teachiing your children to sing, play instruments, read and write music, and move to music. They will be immersed in rhythms, melodies, styles of music, and so much more. This year will include recorders, guitars/ukes, percussion instruments,keyboard, and Orff instruments in addition to composing, moving/dancing, listening, and music analysis. I hope to have each grade level highlighted in a performance.
I will post upcoming musical events below as soon as the dates/times are set. (Some are already on the calender)
We are utilizing the Silver Burdett music series which is aligned with the Arizona state music standards.
This year I am deciding if my choir students will consist of two groups, 3-4 and 5-6 grades or continue with one group of 3-5th graders. They will probably meet on Tues. and Thurs. mornings, but that still needs to be determined.
I look forward to teaching your children the many facets of music and sharing my love for music with them in as many ways as possible.
Stay tuned for all the musical adventures to come!
This year the music classes are on a three day rotation schedule. Each class, Pre-K through 6th grade, receive forty minutes of instruction.
The text that the students are using do not appear to be available online. Here is a list of websites that you may want to "check out"....
