Dear Parents and/or Guardians:
A music student will demonstrate the ability to learn the joy of listening, making, and sharing music together at the earliest age possible while learning the fundamentals of music. To teach the students that anyone can learn the art of performing in public and reach their performing and artistic goals first they will learn good attending skills, self-confidence, the love and passion for the arts, the desire to perform, the discipline to listen, the moral support at home to reinforce music appreciation, and the will to practice the different skills required to be a great student in school and not just during music classes. Please remember that REPETITION is one of the most important ways to learn! Always have fun and enjoy singing, dancing, playing instruments, reading and writing music, and finally creating original music in general!
Please remember that all of the students in grades 1 & 2 are required to have a one subject notebook and #2 pencil in school due no later than October 31, 2016, in order to write important concepts, homework, projects, and/or ideas during music classes every week. The students will also be taught to read and write the fundamentals of musical notation. They will be able to create, sing, and/or play their own original short piece of music.
Q: How do you get to Carnegie Hall?
A: It is very simple... Practice, Practice, Practice!
“Thank you for your Participation!”
(2016-17 DWS Choir Auditions)
Dear Parents/Guardians of Grades 1 & 2 currently attending DWS,
Thank you very much to all of the students who auditioned so bravely for the Daniel Webster School Concert Choir. Unfortunately, because of the overwhelming number of students trying out, your child has not been selected to be a member of the DWS Choir this school year. All of the participants have to be acknowledged and congratulated for trying out. He/she will receive extra credit towards their First Marking Period Grades.
All of the students attending DWS in grades 1 and 2 will be performing during the Winter Program in December of 2016 in the gym. Everyone, parents, guardians, family, and friends, are cordially invited to this wonderful Annual Winter Program, details to follow later!
Please explain to your children how proud you and I are of them for singing a cappella by themselves in front of their classmates and for performing so bravely. Also, mention to the students to always practice singing, dancing, performing, and love music and the arts. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact me. Thank you very much for your kind understanding!
Mr. Piero Romano
