It has been a great first week back! I hope everyone had a wonderful summer break and are ready to make some outstanding music this year. Please check back to this blog often. I will post information about what we are studying in the classroom as well as upcoming performances. This year, we will have 5th & 6th grade musical about Pirates! We will begin choir the 2nd week of Sept.

Also, this year the 4th graders will perform in their first musical. It is a wonderful musical that celebrates special holidays that occur in the month of December. I will be sending home dates soon so families can be sure to mark these events on their calendars.

Please feel free to email me with questions and concerns. I look forward to making wonderful music at WES with your students this year!

2nd GRADE MUSICAL - A Day at 7 Oaks

The 2nd graders have just started working on their spring musical. It is a musical centered around our 7 habits and the characters from 7 Oaks. Students will be singing songs that match up to the message of a particular habit. The musical will feature singing, dancing, instruments and our terrific 2nd grade actors!

The date of the musical is scheduled for Thursday, May 8th at 7pm. We will perform for the entire school during that day and perform that evening for family and friends. Please mark your calendars now!

This year, the 5th & 6th grade choir will present their musical "Disney and the 7 Habits" in late March. Students will perform for parents, the school and at our annual Leadership Day. We will hold auditions during school the week of November 18-22. All choir students will be part of the production. They will be auditioning for a limited amount of solos and speaking parts. Parts will be posted outside the music room Monday or Tuesday, November 25th-26th. Good luck to all auditioning!

Music Guest Speaker

Are you a professional or semi-professional musician? Do you have a music connection, special cultural instrument or cultural music tradition that you would like to share with a class at Worthington Estates?

I would like to invite any parents or relatives of a Worthington Estates student to come as a guest speaker in my class. Please let me know if you would like to speak to some of my music classes at some point this year!

Welcome back to a new school year! It's going to be a great year of music making. Please take time to check out the music links on this page. There are some fun, interactive websites for students to practice their music reading skills. I will be posting information about upcoming performances for the 5th & 6th grade choir as well as a mini-musical for the 2nd grade in the spring.

Please contact me via email if you have any questions about the music program at WES!
