    • What songs did you learn to sing? 
    • What is your favorite song to sing in class? Can you sing some of the song for me?
    • What types of notes are you focusing on reading and writing? Can you draw and play them for me?

    What should my child wear to concerts?

    We ask that students dress in a neat and clean way. We ask that they refrain from wearing sneakers, jeans, sweatpants, shorts, and flip-flops.
