What is a GLOCKENSPIEL?

A glockenspiel (pronounced "glock-en-shpeel") is a musical instrument made of a set of steel bars mounted in a frame and struck with mallets. In German, the word "GLOCKENSPIEL" means "play bells".

Special Friends in Music Class

Our 1st Grade Concerts are in January!

No, your child does not have two concerts- we are splitting the classes into two sections to perform on two different days! This gives us a more intimate, personal concert experience and tends to be less intimidating for first time music students. Our concerts in first grade are INFORMANCES- a concert experience that invites the audience to participate and experience music class along with the students!


Our First Grade Concert/Informances are: Tuesday, January 19 (Miss Backe and Miss Jolliff's classes) at 6:30pm (Grandparents day at 2pm) and
Thursday, January 21 (Mrs. LaVelle, Mrs. Peeler, and Mrs. Evans's classes) at 6:30pm (Grandparents day at 2pm)
