Two are                                                                                         actually clarinetists!! (If you look closely, you can                                                                                                                         tell.. :) )

Grade 6 Band Students
Serenading Grade 6 Teacher, Mrs. Banas, for her Birthday!! 

A Note from Ms. Belhumeur: 

Welcome back from vacation! 
Here's what music looks like for the home stretch...

In Band, students are preparing for their final performance of the year, the Memorial Day Parade. We are excited to have new music, t-shirts, and a new challenge (learning to march!). 7/8 Band students are simultaneously keeping concert repertoire up to par for Great East Music Festival. Keep an eye out for e-mails with important details regarding this trip!! We will be attending on Friday, May 26th. Our performance is at 9 am at Tewksbury HS and is FREE and open to the public. We'd love to have you there!

In Grade 6 General Music, students are working with improvisation and studying the structure of composition - melody, harmony, bassline, chords & roots. 7th Grade is exploring Eastern Europe through Klezmer Music. In 8th Grade, students are working through the development of rock in the 70's and 80's as we eagerly progress towards present day popular music. 

If you ever have a question about your child's work in music, the curriculum, or just want to check in, please never hesitate to contact me. I can be best reached by email: abelhumeur@nrsd.net, and also by phone: (978) 365-4558 x1035.

Musically Yours,

Meet the Teacher:

Amy Belhumeur holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education from Gordon College. She has experience teaching music to students PreK-12 in general music, instrumental ensembles, and small vocal groups. 

Professionally, Amy strives to stay active and involved, always discovering new ways to bring music to students. She is a member of the National Association for Music Education and the Massachusetts Music Educator's Association. She has held offices with these organizations in her collegiate chapter of NAfME, and as an ambassador for MMEA. In 2015, Amy represented the state of Massachusetts for NAfME's "Hill Day" in Washington D.C., a nationally organized opportunity to advocate for music in schools. At the time of her graduation, Amy was awarded the Most Promising Music Educator Award from MMEA. 

As a performer, Amy has participated in a variety of ensembles: concert band, symphony orchestra, string orchestra, jazz choir, marching band, chamber ensembles, and jazz combos. She prides herself in being a versatile musician and has an interest in a wide variety of music from classical to indie and pop. Some of her notable performing accomplishments include achieving Principal Double Bass for the Gordon College Symphony Orchestra, and Principal Double Bass for her home state's All-State Festival.

When she's not playing or teaching music, Amy enjoys traveling, yoga, rock climbing, and playing with her cat (who ironically dislikes music very much).
