    During the School Closure due to COVID-19 please check your school email account for updates concerning the status upcoming music activities.  I would also advise if you are looking for the quickest way to stay in touch to please sign up and use the REMIND app as well as follow the 2 band TWITTER accounts listed below!


    I will be periodically assigning specific assignments that are aimed to keep your musical skill in shape during the closure.  These assignments will be sent to you via Schoology.  Please make sure your SMARTMUSIC account is up to date and functioning as this will be the primary way I will make assignments.  Remember your account is typically your school email and the password is "Password".


    Please use the time you have to find music that YOU want to play!  Experiment and have fun!  To keep your musical muscles in shape, try to play at least a little bit each day!  Please contact me if you have any questions and stay safe, healthy and musically fit!
