• Welcome to the Desert Sage Music Department 
    Music Dept.
    Dear Families,
     
    I hope you have had a fun and relaxing summer.  I am so excited to begin the 2018-19 school year.  In the General Music class, I am excited to start the year off with a strings unit for 3rd-6th grade.  The 3rd/4th grade students will begin the year on the Violin as a part of an introductory unit on the string family.  The 5th/6th grade general music class will begin a unit on folk music and how it applies to the guitar.  Both 2nd/3rd grade students will start the year off with a pre-assessment in music theory with an emphasis in rhythm and note reading. 
    Students in 3rd-6th grade are invited to join the choir family.  3rd grade students may join the Prep Choir which rehearses one morning a week  from 7:45-8:30 a.m.  The  4th-6th grade Grade Chorus Club meet one Morning @ 7:45 a.m. and some.   I asking that all students in choir realize the commitment to being a part of a team and it is very important to honor your commitments for the school year.  I also wanted to prepare families for the school year, by letting you know that we will be using a uniform for choir.  This is standard for most schools.  In addition, I am asking parents to purchase a Choir Polo shirt that the students will wear for concerts and spirit days.  All of the Choirs that I have directed wear Choir polos with black pants or black jeans.  The cost of the shirt is around $20.00.  I will have the order forms available at Meet the Teacher night.  Please stop by the Music Room.   I will be in my room from 5:00-6:00 PM to answer any questions you may have.

    I look forward to working with all of our students to meet their musical goals. 
     

    Sincerely,
