Primary Music Demonstration December 13th

For Parents of students TK – 3rd grade.  You are invited to a unique opportunity to learn more about our music classes.  As we strive to become more skilled musicians, we have been involved in studying music through our song experience games.  During the first part of our demonstration, we will share a glimpse into our journey toward becoming better vocal musicians.  The second part will be a short concert style presentation.  We hope you will be able to join us!
