We have lots of exciting musical things going on at Camelot!

We have two before-school music clubs this year! The Camelot Chorus meets Tuesday & Thursday mornings at 7:30 am, and has several performances throughout the year. Students must be in 3rd - 5th grade to participate. The fee for new members is $20 and includes an embroidered polo shirt for performances. This fee also helps us cover the cost of music. Returning members who do not need a new shirt will have a fee of $10 for cost of music.

The Royal Rhythm Orff Ensemble will begin after winter break and will meet Wednesday mornings at 7:30 am. Students must be in 4th - 5th grade to participate and members will be selected by audition.

Performance Dates:
December 4, 2019 - Winter Concert - 6:00 pm
April 24, 2020 - Fine Arts Night - 6:00 pm
May 6, 2020 - Spring Concert - 6:00 pm

In music class, our students will discover the joys of music through singing, dancing, instrument-playing, composing, story-telling, and much more! Every student will learn to play pitched and un-pitched percussion instruments, and our older students will also play the recorder. At the end of the year we will be having a Fine Arts Night to showcase all that your children have learned this year!

A well-rounded music education is vital for all children. Research shows that students involved in a music activity score significantly better on standardized tests and college entry exams, and have enhanced abstract reasoning skills. Our music classroom will also aim to increase whole-brain learning, multi-cultural understanding, cooperative learning, self-confidence, and school community!

How can you help? We are always seeking donations; instruments and music are quite expensive. Your donations will help our students reach a new level of quality music education. If you are interested in making a donation or helping our music classes, please contact me!

I’m looking forward to a great year of music-making with our Camelot Knights!

Please feel free to email or call me with questions!

Musically yours,
