Welcome to the BES Music page!
We are pumped to be together again! It will be awesome to see you again. And a big WELCOME to our new students! I look forward to getting to know each of you.
Our procedures will be changing big time. It will take some getting used to, but I am confident that we are capable and resilient enought to make it through this strange time. We are gonna keep learning. That's what we do!
We will attempt to sit with more distance in the music classroom. And to avoid sharing many of our classroom sets of instruments, I am putting together individual music bags for you to use. They will include laminated worksheets, we will reuse with dry-erase markers, and make-shift instruments, modified from everyday items. This will allow the music to still be made. For now, it is recommended that we not sing as a group, even while wearing masks. (I'm disappointed too. It's my favorite.) So, we will do some humming and a LOT of rhythm work. I'll do my best to keep it interesting!
In the case of students learning from home (for MCPS Online or a second interruption), please look in Teams for a Grade-level music class. I will post assignments here weekly. Your homeroom teacher will let you know what day these will show up.
