Orchestra Class Update, 3/16/21
Greetings Orchestra Families:
We are in our third week of Chamber Music in all of our orchestra classes. Students are meeting in small groups in Upbeat Music, an application and program that is funded by our Boosters Club. In Upbeat, students video conference, then record individually. After completing their recording, the program instantly mixes their tracks together - and students can immediately watch and listen to their group performance.
The emphasis is growth over time - so we are not expecting full performances. Rather, students will work on small chunks of work each week, during class.
Also, we are actively looking for new parent volunteers to help run out Boosters Club going into next school year. Our current board is made up of friendly, caring, and dedicated parents - and they have been working to help support many of our music opportunities in Orchestra. If you are interested in volunteering, please send an email to your teacher! There is no cost to join, and by volunteering your time and skills, you are helping not only your own student, but our entire music program. Thank you for considering!
