A Beautiful Thank You Note

This morning I received a beautiful thank you email from a family I have never met. They found my site while searching for music resources to use while learning from home. The thank you letter was very heart-warming and started my day off with a ray of sunshine. 🌞 Since they have been using resources from my page they wanted to share a resource with me to possibly add to my page.

Here is the Piano Resource they so graciously shared with me. 😊🎶

And, D. H., for your young flutist, here are two of my newest discoveries. Emmanuel Pahud is a great flutist. Search out any of his videos just to watch and be inspired. And my friend, Jeff Zook, also has great resources.

To A. H., M.H (aka K. H.), and D. H. thank you for your kindness. I wish you all the best.

Musically,
Mrs. Celeste Reed

Welcome Back!

Are you all as excited as I am to begin a new school year? I know this year looks quite a bit different than last year but it can still be very wonderful. We are all switching over to Schoology so I will not be using my blog any more.

An update on my schedule: I am happily teaching general music classes at Maples and Howard this year. I am excited to be teaming up with my friends, Mrs. Meyers and Mrs. Bagnall.

I wish all of my students from last year and beyond the best. I hope you all have a great year of learning. Please keep in touch and let me know how you are doing.

We are all hard at work learning the new technology.

Music Activity on Google!

Check out this fun music activity on Google today. These special activities are usually available only for one day so don’t miss this chance to play the Mbira. After you go to this page and learn about and play the Mbira send me an email and share with me something that you learned or liked about this page. reedc@dearbornschools.org

Recorder Duet

Mrs. Reed had a little bit of fun with another music teacher from Dearborn. Mr. K. and Mrs. Reed played a Recorder Duet using social distancing. Mr. K. recorded the drum part and his recorder part and emailed the file to Mrs. Reed. Mrs. Reed recorded herself on recorder and then spliced it all together into a video. We hope you enjoy our performance.
