A note from Mrs. Masters...
Dear parents of 3rd and 4th graders,
This summer we have a great music enrichment for Keller-Harvel. In addition to myself, two other local music teachers from Zimma-Rimba will be directing a marimba music camp. In one week you will learn to play Zimbabwean Marimbas. The music is exciting with amazing instruments that your children will love.
Check out these videos from past marimba camps with Zimma-Rimba here in Keller.
Register at www.zimmarimba.com
Classes are limited to 15 to 20 students so register quickly before classes are full.
