Murray Avenue School Bands
Dear MAS Band Families,
In preparation for the 2020-21 school year, I ask that you please review the letter below regarding personal protective equipment required for band class. I look forward to working with your child and making music in some shape or form this year, whether it is in person or through a screen!
Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
We will be using SmartMusic and Soundtrap to deliver the band curriculum this year, among various other tech tools to engage students in music literacy, composition, improvisation, listening, and performing.
Students will receive their Google Classroom code to join on August 26th. All links for live class instruction and assignments will be posted on the classroom page. Students will receive step by step instructions on how to open their 'new' SmartMusic and Soundtrap accounts during the first two weeks of school.
Co-curricular rehearsals are a part of the band course, however, procedures and practices will be modified to comply with Covid-19 and the virtual/hybrid settings. You will be notified when and how rehearsals will begin.
Questions? Please contact Ms. Michelle Lillie-Beck, Director of Bands (Grades 6-8)
