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 grade levels will be split in half, three classes (1Jo/1Ev/1La) will perform on January 28th and the other two classes (1Ti/1Pe) will perform on January 30th. The performance times for both of these days is 2pm.

Details and specifics will be announced later next month.
