Our Concert Video is Ready!
Dear Families – We are certainly missing all of our POP students, and are hopeful that you are staying healthy and safe during this isolation. We are working hard to make sure your students have plenty of things to practice at home, so look for updates in your email!
I’m SUPER excited to announce that our concert video is ready! Here’s the link. Sit down with your student and watch the concert together. Better yet, sit the whole family down and enjoy the concert together. It really was a wonderful session, and you are going to love this video. The kids were really disappointed to lose the whole celebratory aspect of the concert day, so maybe you can watch the concert together, then all have a celebratory treat – like ice cream or cookies, or whatever you have in your house right now! Be sure to celebrate you student and tell them all how wonderful they are!
Your TAs are recording for you!
In an effort to continue to provide you with resources for your students at home, our TAs are busy making videos for you to use while you practice from home. The videos are now live on our website – go to the POP Family page and scroll all the way to the bottom. You’ll find a link under Resources that says “click here.” Click it for access to our instructional videos. Your child is encouraged to do videos posted by their TAs AND, if they want, they can check out videos of other TAs and practice along withe them. We would love to have your feedback on how this process is going in your home, so please let me know.
Register for Summer Program!
At this point, we are uncertain what will be happening during the summer, but for now, we are planning on moving ahead. Please register your student for 2, 4, or 6 weeks of program. Remember that this will only cost you a $25 registration fee, and that’s all! The kids are REALLY going to need this by the time we get there. Here’s the link.
Please fill out this very short survey
Please take a minute to fill out this google poll and let me know if your student has an instrument and/or internet access at home. This will help me in determining what I need to send home for them.
No Program Scheduled until April 6 – But you can still be musical!
So many arts organizations are offering free access to their concerts and performances. Check out the links below to get some supplemental music in your house!
- My kids introduced me to a REALLY FUN music making site called Chrome Music Lab. You can find it here.
- CHALLENGE: Have your student create a piece of music using this platform and send me the link. I’ll share them with you next week!
Moving forward, if you have any questions, I’m certainly available to you. Feel free to email or call me. I hope you had a relaxing spring break! Please, everyone stay healthy – wash those hands!
