Instrumental Music

Instrumental Music Overview

Welcome to my instrumental music web site. I currently teach band and strings at Seward. and Barton.

All 5th graders are required to play a musical instrument in Minneapolis public schools. Each student will get the opportunity to play a band, or stringed instrument. The schools have a limited supply of instruments. If can provide your one as long as it is in good working order.

4th graders may choose to do band or strings but it is NOT required.. My time is divided between 2 schools so there is limited lesson times available. I try to make this happen for any 4th grader that wants to play!

Band instrument choices are: Flute, Clarinet, Alto Sax, Trumpet, Trombone, Baritone and Percussions.

String instrument choices are: Violin, Viola and Cello

Materials: I will be using Essential Elements for band, or strings, book 1

Email me with any questions at: Michael.
