Week 7 Words from Mr. Wood

Hopefully you saw our smore regarding auditions (here is a link). Since we are not going to have a solo contest, we are shifting to audition music for the end of the year. To facilitate this we are going to have two afternoon and two late morning help sessions (all optional) that is open to all 6th and 7th grade students. This will help us meet the deadline of May 11th as per Mrs. Robinson's instructions to us.

Have a great week!

Audition Help Sessions

All 6th and 7th grade students are encouraged to log into one of our eight zoom help sessions.

  • Wednesdays & Fridays 4/29, 5/1, 5/6, 5/8 from 11:00-11:30. Click THIS LINK

  • Tuesday & Thursdays 4/28, 4/30, 5/5, & 5/7 from 1:30-2:00. Click THIS LINK

When you log on please be sure to mute your microphone, but have your video on. A director will play sections for you and give you a chance to demonstrate (if you wish) or have any questions answered that you might have. These eight zoom sessions are the ONLY help directors are offering in an effort to keep things on a level playing field for all students. If you would like additional help please consider enrolling in private lessons. Email Ms. Hoffman at if you would like information on how to enroll.
