2022-23 will be my 16th year at West Clayton Elementary.  I love exploring all types of music!  Bring your excitement to class and let's see what we can accomplish together!



     Music Class Schedule:

    We had a great time playing many instruments this spring!  It's time for summer vacation.  Rest up as we will move forward and thrive musically during the fall.  We will be learning about countries and cultures, playing instruments, singing songs, and creating our own "cool" music.


    4th and 5th graders:  Please be sure you have secured a recorder for material we will be playing in 2022-23.  I really want everyone to receive full credit for their recorder performances this year.  If you will need a school issued recorder, please have parents sign the form below and bring to music class so a school provided recorder can be issued to you for the 2022-23 school year.
