This summer I got to play music with my 5 beautifully talented nieces at my family farm's 100th year anniversary. It was a special moment and so grateful for our time together with family and friends, growing, learning, and connecting. How did you get your music on this summer?
We are well into the month of September and everyone is super excited to be back and getting in our groove. This summer I found a really great song written by Canadian children's musician, Raffi. We are adopting it as our theme song for the year and a great reminder that in the circle of life, we all belong! Celebrating our uniqueness, strengths, and passions.
It's been another year of many amazing things discovered, wrestlings, and determination to learn in community and who we are as individuals. We've discovered gifts and pressed through many trials. As I say good-bye today to my Grade 5 kids, many of whom I have taught music to for the past 6 years, it is never without some tears as a mom and I shared today at the end of our assembly. Amazing families, kids, teachers, and friends. Thank you for letting me be there. We've ridden the storms well and I hope that each of my students will take all the good that we've known and the heart aches and keep pressing forward and climb and shine. Never give up!
Stand in the light and be seen as you are.
To my students moving on, we will miss you and wish you the best wherever you go. Keep in touch! To my returning musicians in 2017-2018, I'm ready to rock it with you!

The Grade 2/3 classes are learning to draw treble clefs. There are 2 ways to draw them and the above is the way we learned today. It's important to wrap the body around the G line and not go outside line 1 and 3.
