I am trying to find the best date to make up our League of Yes performance. I would like to choose the date where the most kids can not only make it, but also stay and be buddies - because that's honestly the best part of the day! Please click the link below and complete the survey. After I have heard back from all/most of you, I will send home the rescheduled date. Thank you!

For the majority of April and May, THIRD GRADE students in Mr. Baur's music classes will be learning about the instruments of the Band and Orchestra so that they may begin to learn an instrument in FOURTH GRADE. Music classes will include discussions of each instrument that they may choose to learn to play, as well as feature videos exemplars, and live in-class demonstrations of the instruments by some of our fifth grade students!

Each spring the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) runs solo and ensemble festivals that allow students of any age to prepare a piece of music and perform it in front of an adjudicator. The advantages of this festival are that it allows the student an opportunity to learn a quality piece of instrumental or vocal literature and develop proper technique, style, and begin to build a repertoire of music for performances. Students then perform as a soloist for an adjudicator - which is one of the National Standards for Music. The adjudicator scores the students based on predetermined criteria and that score is used to as one criteria in the nomination process for SCMEA All-County ensembles the following year. Please visit the NYSSMA page by clicking NYSSMA along the top of my website or CLICK HERE for this year's audition information. The deadline for signups is Friday, January 20, 2017.
Congratulations to all on such a wonderful Winter Concert! I am so pleased with the performances of TrebleMakers as well as Chorus. Both groups performed with such artistry and professionalism. All of the students worked so hard and deserve to be so proud of their work. I couldn't be prouder to be their teacher!
