Online Classes & Codes

Dear Parents & Students,

We hope you and your families are all well during these challenging times. We wanted to reach out with some exciting news! We have implemented an online resource to continue your students musical learning and will have the videos and materials uploaded soon . We decided that the easiest way to continue in a virtual setting was to split the classes up by level and instrument. That way our teachers can present the material in a concise way with special attention to the nuances of each individual instrument. We will post the weeks assignment to the Google Classrooms on Mondays. It would be great if students could practice throughout the week and then upload a video of themselves performing the music by the end of the week. That way we can give each student individual feedback about their progress and help them continue to grow.

Our teachers will all be available throughout the week to answer any questions that students may have or give them extra help if they need it. Feel free to reach out anytime. In order to register for the class, you need to login using a Gmail account (google has weird rules about who can join). You won’t be able to join unless the login email

is xxxxx@gmail.com

If you don’t have a Gmail account, don’t worry! It’s very quick, easy, and free to set one up. Just visit: www.gmail.com, click on sign up for new account, and follow the onscreen prompt.

Once you have a Gmail address, you can visit https://classroom.google.com click ‘Go to Classroom’ and sign in with your Gmail account and password. You’ll either see a

message that says ‘No classes here!’ or a list of other classes you registered for.

We started this week with some easy content and review to get everyone accustomed to the new learning environment. We we will be ramping up the amount of material over the coming weeks and hope to hold an end of year recital virtually. If you have any issues joining the class, please let us know and we can send a direct invite to your Gmail account.

We have modified our schedule to reflect the remaining number of classes for the year and will be posting new content by end of day Monday on the following weeks:

March 23 | March 30 | April 6| (Week off for spring break) | April 20 | April 27 | May 4 | May 11 | May 18

If you could please help us spread this news to fellow music classmates we would really appreciate it. We send it out to the same email list every time but sometimes it ends up in spam folders, gets blocked, etc. The more participants, the more fun we can make the end of the year!

Giving individual feedback is a big part of what we do, so please encourage your student to post videos and ask questions so we can help them learn and thrive. Please let us know if you have any questions or need any assistance getting signed up. We are excited to bring some musical joy into your

student’s day!
