Welcome Back School 99 Students!

Due to the Covid-19 virus, the Buffalo Public School district will hold classes 100% online for at least the first 6-10 weeks of the 2020-21 school year.

We are all learning so many new things about technology! Together let's explore new ways to learn about music and grow musicianship skills virtually while we cannot be in person.

The first few music lessons will be dedicated to making sure everyone is connected, checking in on how you are doing, and individualized goal setting for music from PK to Grade 4!

I will also invite everyone to explore the essential question:

How can music help people get through difficult times?

If you need to get in touch with me:

My school email is:

You may also text or call me at my Google Voice phone:

Students and parents can also message me directly through Schoology.

Learning Logistics:

Music will meet synchronously (live) by video-chat through TEAMS once a week for grades PK-3, and twice a week for grade 4. The schedule will be provided to you by the school administration so you will know what time to log onto the "Encore" class of the day.

Lesson materials will be posted on Schoology. Students may have time to work on some things "asynchronously" or at their own pace offline.

More info is to come!

Meanwhile... music is everywhere! Open up your ears and think about what you hear.
