Happy Hollow Music

Mr. Helgerman & Mr. Leazenby

Welcome to music class! This year in music class, we will learn through playing, singing, moving, and creating music. Happy Hollow has a rich tradition of music education, and as your new music teacher, I look forward to learning about those traditions, while finding ways to contribute from my own experience. Please also have a look at Mr. Leazenby's website for a great deal of useful information.
