Falcon Bluffs Middle School
"Soaring with Pride"
The Falcon Bluffs Music Department
In the music program we have a lot of fun but, we work VERY hard. From day one I stress that we all start the year at different places in our journey but everyday we all strive to try, reflect, try again and share! We can learn from everyone and in this classroom we are all learners and teachers. We are a team.
Here are Falcon we offer Band, Choir, and Orchestra. At the 6th grade level students focus on establishing a strong foundation of technique in order to develop their craft. We focus on learning how to practice and become self-sufficient learners and musicians. At the 7th/8th grade levels we are in a combined class which enables us to create a mentorship model. Students continue to build on their technical abilities and grow in the musicianship abilities. We tour the Chatfield area and attend adjuictated performances all over the state. Our older students learn how to be community members and share their skills with people around the community.
I'm excited for another magical, musical year here at Falcon Bluffs!

Monthly Falcon Bluffs Music Notes:
The only way this program can be successful is if we are a team; student, teacher, and parent. If you ever have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org). I email a monthly newsletter with important department info but I realize not everyone likes school messenger so I will also put the monthly newsletter on this website. Another important resource is the calendar above. It will be updated with all out of school events/ concerts. Although I strive to not adjust dates and times given at the beginning of the year, somethings are out of my hands.
