HMS Bands

March

Welcome!

It is my pleasure to teach the Sparta Fourth and Fifth Grade Bands.

Our HMS Musicians not only learn how to play with good sounds, to read music, and to perform, but we contribute our creativity, dedication, and JOY to the HMS Community.

Enjoy the Music around you!

Mrs. Curtis

Dear Parents & Guardians,

I hope all is well with you and your family. It is certainly strange not to be in school playing music with the bands, and I look forward to getting back together soon!

Our long-distance learning for band will take place through Google Classroom. Everyone should be able to find our band class after logging into Google Classroom. If your child has any difficulty, please contact me right away (pat.curtis@sparta.org).

We will focus on the music already in your child's binder - warm ups, lesson & song books, band music, and bonus songs. To help your child keep track of playing at home, there is a Band Bingo board in Google Classroom - let's aim for a "bingo" each week. Along with the songs, there are activities through links as well as attached fun sheets, all within Google Classroom.

Enjoy the music, and please keep in touch. If your child is interested in playing with me via Skype or Facetime (or even over the phone), please contact me.

Take care, and I look forward to seeing everyone again soon.

Kind regards,

Patty Curtis
