CSDA:
Welcome to Mrs. Catino's Music Class!

Happy Spring, everyone! We've been having a lot of fun, here in music class! Most recently, we've completed a Integrated Arts Unit based around heroes (where we incorporated some drama/acting, singing, AND learning about several heroes, their traits/characteristics, and what they did to better our world) and we have now moved into a science of sound and instrument building unit where we've learned the "specifics" of each instrument family, a bit of sound science/sound wave knowledge, and culminating with building our own instruments using that knowledge!

Again, this year, we are looking very forward in the spring to participating in American Young Voices with our chorus students! This event will be held on Wed. June 5th (concert at 7pm!) at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA! (follow the link to learn more and order tickets!! - http://www.americanyoungvoices.com/ ). Be sure to order tickets by May 1st for prefered seating!

Also, here are some helpful practice links for your chorus students!
