We are completing a wonderful summer of music making in Highland. Everyone associated with our music program deserves a standing ovation, especially our parents. Because of you, music is an important and respected academic subject in our school and a vital art form in our community. Thank you!
Camp has come to an end, but classes continue starting on the first day of school. Also, many musical opportunities still exist in the community for you and your child. May we suggest:
Music is an interactive language. When one plays or sings, the listener as well as the performer is actively engaged in the exchange. The weeks ahead can provide an opportunity for your child to be the performer and the listener. Through this, he/she may gain a new level understanding and appreciation of music.
For the returning students, we have exciting plans for the coming year and we anticipate continued positive growth in our music program. There will be opportunities for these students to serve in leadership roles and assume more responsibility within the group.
Thank you again for being a strong advocate of music in our Highland schools.
