Welcome to music class! It is going to be a great year!
Kindergarten students will attend music each day, every other week.  first-, second-, third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students will attend music three times a week, every other week. 
Music instruction involves singing, playing percussive instruments, music reading and writing, listening and, for the younger ones, a lot of movement, i.e., singing games.  
Third- and fourth-grade students will play recorder in the spring. Students will be given information about purchasing a recorder well in advance. The cost is minimal.  Every grade level will have a music program.  See "Music Program Dates" for the schedule.

5th Grade Audition Results

Hello!  I know so many of you have been waiting for the audition results and those special parts that do not require an audition.  Students, I want you to understand why you had to wait a week or so for the results.  I spent about 8 hours today watching videos, listening to recordings, debating, comparing, and being creative to include students that auditioned, as well as those that expressed an interest in a special part. I know you understand that there is no way every student that wants a special part can have one, as that would compromise the integrity of the program, so I work hard for balance:  Beautiful, meaningful singing, showcasing individual talent, as well as providing fun for performers and the audience. I hope you are as excited as I am for this year's 5th-grade holiday program.  With your commitment, talent and skills, it will be the best CFES has ever had!
