Interdistrict Discovery Magnet School

September, 2017

Students and Parents,

Welcome back to school!

I am really looking forward to this year in music.  Our classes are going to be very exciting.

This year we will be reviewing the essentials of music, and putting them into practice throughout the year.  We will be learning music from other countries and how to sing in other languages.

Also, we will be using technology in the classroom, students will learn more about music websites and how to use them for research, composition and exploration.


Highlights for this year!

3rd grade starts recorder

4th grade creating a band

Band classes for grades 5-8

Piano and guitar classes for 7th & 8th graders.

Beginning electronic composition for 8th grade.


Materials for class

All students in grades 3 – 7, will need a pencil and folder for music class.

If there are any questions please feel free to call the school of email me at
