Fourth grade students have been very excited about the annual “Homemade Instrument Project”. We have been learning about instruments and their families, sounds, materials, and origins. All of this information comes together in the final project in which they create their very own instrument out of reusable materials! Every year I am impressed with the creativity the students show toward this project!

Our final concert for the year will be on March 3, 2011 at 6:00 PM. for the following classes: Mrs. Durr, Mrs. VonDeBur, and Mrs. Zellers. We have just begun getting ready for this concert and packets with concert information and lyrics to the songs will be sent home soon! Reserve the date!

And finally, as you prepare for your spring cleaning, keep your music department in mind! I will gladly take band or rhythm instruments that you are throwing away! Unfortunately, I cannot take those unwanted pianos or organs, but smaller instruments will always have a home here!
