Announcements
Hi everyone! In light of the school closure, I've provided some free resources that I hope will be helpful to your musical learning (and fun) at home!

As you enter this stage of learning at home with your kid(s), make time in their schedule for music! Even 15 minutes a day will be helpful (and hopefully fun) for them. (If they can handle 30-45 minutes, all the better!)

Included below are:

  • Websites with Interactive Music Lessons & Activities
  • YouTube Music Lessons & Songs
  • School-Appropriate Karaoke playlists
  • Music & Movement Activities
  • Recorder Lessons & Songs (3rd-5th)
  • Songs Your Westie Should Be Able to Sing for You
  • Music Vocab Your Westie Should Be Able to Define
  • Sight-Singing Exercises

HAVE FUN, SING, AND MAKE MUSIC!
