    Dear Students and Parents,

    I hope you are well and safe at home during this time.  I miss working with you all and will do my best to continue teaching from home.  I will be using this webpage as well as the Remind app, email, Sight Reading Factory and Google Classroom during this time. I may add other fomats such as Zoom as soon as either they are approved or I find anything to be an effective tool. I sent out directions for access to free student accounts on sight reading factory on the remind app and also the codes for Google Classroom. Please email me or text me on remind or Google Classroom with any questions you may have.

    Choral students should go to the choir page on my website/remind and listen to our songs and practice.  Try to memorize the lyrics and sing your voice part. If you did not bring your music home, I have scanned copies onto materials in Google Classroom.  I will be adding more songs to this list and sending out recordings of your voice part. If you do not have the listening log sheet, I will attach it next week or you can just write a written response. You should also be completing assignments on Sight Reading Factory.  Make sure to sing everyday!! By the way, NYSSMA Majors is cancelled for this year but I'm still hoping we will have the concert!

    Voice students should go to my voice class page and practice singing along with the accompaniments or using the accompaniments I put on remind.  Please continue to practice at home as this is a good time for music practice. You can use my NYSSMA warmup recording as well.  The NYSSMA solo festival is cancelled for this year but there will be more information coming out for those who are auditioning for All State.  Everyone should continue to practice your solos for the recital and for your own personal growth.  You can continue to grow as a musician and singer at home. 

    Piano students should be practicing at home if you have an instrument.  If not, you can continue to work on your music theory skills which will strengthen your piano playing. I will research virtual pianos that you could use during this time as well.  I will also be sending out music theory games/ practice and quizzes on the remind app to strengthen your skills at home. 

    *Please continue to practice at home as this is a good time for music practice.  I will also be sending out music theory games/practice and quizzes for all music students on the remind app or Google Classroom to strenghten your skills at home. I would love to hear recordings of your playing or singing during this time.  Thank you!  Please reach out by email or remind if you have any questions.  Miss you all!

    Take care,

    Mrs. MacDougall
