Parents come next week & tuition is due!
We’re at the final stages of enrollment for next year and are wrapping it up! If you have not enrolled yet, there is an added processing fee of $10 after April 10th.
The recital is coming up! A separate email with specific practice instructions will be sent out. Please take the time to rehearse assigned songs at home and help your child prepare for their performance. Keep in mind, we are not a performing group, but we do like to showcase what we have learned!
Homework: pp. 28–31 Students cut out and glue on the Chords in Pieces solfege, as well as color the triangles. Be sure to listen to the CD and practice on the bells! Bell practice is essential to prepare students for Year 2 on the keyboards.

Turn on this fun video of the "Ants Go Marching" and have your kids act out the catchy nursery rhyme! An added bonus ... it's great exercise!
