Hi Howard Dragons! I hope you had a great Memorial Day/Eid Weekend. All instruments and supplies need to be returned on Thursday, May 28th. Please see the school blog and/or your teacher’s blog for more info.
There is a short and easy assignment this week in Google Classroom that does not require an instrument to complete. All info and an explanation video can be found in the assignment in Google Classroom. As always, if you have any questions, please reach out.
An assignment for students in band and orchestra has been posted in my Google Classroom. Students will listen to a short podcast about classical music in commercials and then research a song they think will fit into a commercial for an elegant and expensive car. All work is due by Thursday this week due to the Memorial Day holiday. As always if anyone has questions please reach out. I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe.
Hi Howard Students and Families. I miss you! I hope you all are doing well. This week you have two assignments due by Friday.
1.) uTheory.com lesson: Rhythm, Half and Whole Notes. I created a “how to” video for this week since some of you got confused about how the program worked when I assigned it last time. I hope it helps clear up any questions. All info can be found in Google Classroom.
2.) Chrome Music Lab Song Creation Lesson. Note you don’t need your instrument to do this assignment as you will be creating electronic music. A how-to video and instructions are in the Google Classroom assignment.
