Music Reminders 1/20/19

Music and Arts Festival Applications were due this past Friday, Jan. 18th.  Thanks to all you have shown interest in performing at the Festival. Due to the tremendous response, late applications will be placed on a “waiting list” and called upon as needed.

4th graders – reminder – all of your recorder music and vocal songs are on my blogs.  Look for the title and get practicing! The recorder print music will be posted soon in the event music has been misplaced.

Enjoy the weekend!

Mr. Krauss


HELLO, COYOTES – this week our students played drums, mallet instruments, sang and reviewed a book / song about FOOTPRINTS IN THE SNOW and directions that melodies can take – ASCENDING & DESCENDING!

Also, just a reminder, permission / audition forms for the annual MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL are due to Mr. Krauss on FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, 2019. Late submissions will not be accepted as a tremendous number of students have expressed interest in participating in this extraordinary musical event.  ONLY students who are currently taking private or group lessons in singing, instruments and dance are eligible to participate following a successful audition. The MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL is THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 2019, 6:00pm @ KES.

4th graders have received their packet of music in order to prepare for their performance assembly on FRIDAY, MARCH 22, 2019, @ 1:00PM in the KES gym. Please continue to encourage your young musician to prepare their assignments for the recorder and thank you for your support.

Enjoy the weekend and be safe – “Oh, the weather outside is frightful….”
