Welcome to chorus at Sunset Ridge!
My Name is Mr. John Denton and I teach K-6 General Music, 3-8 Grade Chorus, Musical Theater, and Music Technology/Pop Music Lab.
I wear many hats at our school, district, and state level but the one I am most proud of is being a teacher to your children.
We treat music as a language at Sunset Ridge and while my goal is to keep students engaged and driven towards a love of music; our true goal is mastery and literacy of musical concepts.
Our chorus program has five outstanding groups to choose from and at this time will look very different than normal as we continue our learning on Canvas:
- Morning Choir (3-5 Graders, Tuesdays and Wednesdays 7:30-8:30 AM)
- Grade 6 Treble Choir
- Middle School Concert Choirs: Treble and Mixed
- Soaring Sounds Show Choir (6th, 7th, and 8th Graders may join)
All groups are structured to immerse children in a program that emphasizes technique, style, sight reading, and musicianship; but as always we have one overarching goal in any music program at Sunset Ridge...
"helping students make connections between the music we make at school and the music they encounter in the world."
