As we prepare for music outside the classroom I wanted to get a quick message out about the music department.
Prior to the break we had another outstanding Chilliwack Lions Music Festival and I want to congratulate all the ensembles on their incredible accomplishments. Unfortunately the Festival Honours Concertwhich was scheduled for April 7th has been cancelled.
All parents/students should have received an email this morning about SmartMusic and getting students signed up. SmartMusic is a online based music resource that will allow students to practice and learn from home. Students can play along with professional recordings, adjust the tempo to their need, loop challenging sections and be recorded and assessed. SmartMusic has more the 10,000 pieces of music students can explore as well as method books, sight-reading/singing, solos and more. The class code for your class can be found in the email.
If there are any students who cannot access the internet regularly from home please let me know and I will provide pdf’s of the music we are studying and recordings.
The only other thing I need from students this week is the email address they prefer to be contacted at. MyEd has many emails for students but I find they aren’t always the ones students use often. I’ll be communicating weekly through email so it is imperative I have the correct email address.
