After School Ensembles for 2018-19

Hello Miller students and parents!

Information slips have begun being handed out today about our two after school groups this year: one drumming group and a singing group (choir). I am attaching the handouts here, in case you were unable to get a copy from Mr. Keramaris or I. Please read it carefully! As it says, we will be available most days this week and next before and after school to hear students audition for either of the two groups. The last day to audition is October 5th, as Mr. Keramaris and I will finalize the list of students selected for each group and get permission slips to them before our first rehearsal the following week. If you have any questions, please let us know.

Thank you!

5th Grade Graduation – Song

5th Grade students have been invited to sing at their graduation next Wednesday. If they are interested in doing so, we are rehearsing Monday, June 11th, 3:35-4pm (this is a corrected date from the handout!)

Attached below is a copy of the permission slip and the song we will sing. Please be aware: If Mr. Keramaris or I do not receive the signed bottom of the slip by the time rehearsal begins on Monday, the student may not stay with us. This is to ensure everyone’s safety, and that we know how they will be going home afterwards.

If there are any questions, please let Mr. Keramaris or I know. Thank you!

W.B.P.E. Feb/March Rhythm Projects

W.B.P.E.’s latest project allowed them to work in groups of as many as they wished, towards a goal: a song that included three drums, one of them had to be a doumbek. With these directions alone, they were able to work together to create very different short pieces of music to share with each other. Along with decisions on rhythms and which instruments, students were asked to make choices on the form of the song (order of how they would play and for how long), how they would begin, and how they would end. These are their songs!

Julia and James

Mahmoud, Wassam, and Elyas

Anwaar and Sarah (Dania A helped create)

Mlak, Antsar, and Nour

Dania D, Amira, Reem, Jumana


(Videos can only be viewed if you are signed into your Dearborn Schools email)
