Goodmorning MMUsic,
Looking out at the snow is so calming for me, not sure everyone feels that way but I still love it! Martin Luther King, an inspiration and a wonderful human being who fought for what he believed in. I am reminded by this day that we should fight for what we believe in, especially if you know it is really important for our children and our future. University of Vermont did a study about music and this too is something that I feel very passionate about~Music is needed for every child and adult in order to feel whole. Please read it and think how cool it is that our very own University, in our back yard did this amazing study~The results are fabulous and support everything we do in CESU as Music Educators. Thank you for supporting us!
Science Just Discovered~A UVM Science Study

Hello MMUsic,
WOW! three days of snow and no school~I hope this e-mail finds you safe, warm and with power. Thinking about many of you who endured days without power and hoping you are all hooked up again.

***BAND SMARTMUSIC
I am not assigning Smartmusic until after vacation~Students did not have power last week so I've decided to give them this week, and next week is a short week/vacation which means no assignments will go out. This is a great time to get them done!
The grade I posted today includes the ones not done last week. If you could not get them done, no worries that grade will change in two weeks :-)

***ORCHESTRA
Symphony sign up for pot luck dinner for our concert January 21st
Here is the link:

***MMUsic Rehearsal, dinner, bubble soccer and movie event Lock-In-January 16th, 2015

***HAWAII PAYMENTS
Payment Schedule can be done in two ways-Whichever is easiest for you (This is with the 50 dollars off):
Every month on the 5th for $534.25
On the 5th and 19th of every month for for $267.12

***All-STATE AUDITIONS FOR ALL INSTRUMENTALISTS

Audition times are on the band board at the end of the day- Please know that I can change times but there is a $10.00 fee if you wait until the last minute.

You have a few choices for me to hear your solo before you go to All-State (You NEED to pick one before you are eligible to go)

1.    1.  Record yourself via Smartmusic (solo and scales)-Orchestra can't do this option

***Congrats
To all the instrumentalists that auditioned for the New England Music Festival last Saturday. 
Maia Hendrickson for performing at the Freshman breakfast....

***Thank you
To the students and parents who were able to make the Bella Voce concert this past weekend. As a performer it is super awesome to see friendly faces in the audience. Another PR plug: We have released our 5th CD and I was blessed to be asked to play clarinet as a soloist with a piece called "Night".
Please visit the following site if you want to purchase a CD. It makes a great holiday gift.
