WLIS Music

Mr. Helgerman

Welcome to music class! This year in music class, we will learn through playing, singing, moving, and creating music. West Lafayette Intermediate School has a rich tradition of music education, and as your music teacher, I look forward to continuing those traditions, while finding new ways to contribute from my own experience.
