Students will learn how patriotic songs were written in response to events throughout American history and they will be introduced to the brass family of instruments.

Fast/Slow/Loud/Soft String Trio

An introduction to the string family and the fundamental elements of music featuring classical music (can include some Christmas music).

Ensemble Coachings

Musicians are available to coach small and large ensembles in the schools.
Coaching sessions can be done in conjuction with a performance of an existing program.
