Welcome to my online classroom.

"Tell me, I forget. Show me, I remember. Involve me, I understand." -Carl Orff

Welcome to my online classroom. In the music classroom students are involved in music through the Orff Schulwerk process. Students will sing, play, move and create. To learn more about Orff Schulwerk visit the AOSA wesite at Students also learn piano in all grades with our wonderful piano lab and with the help from our friends at A Child's Song.
