Welcome students and parents to the 2017-2018 school year at Burke County Middle School. My name is Jennifer Wilson and I am excited to be leading the Middle School Choruses this year. Our students will soon be hard at work learning to sing, learning to read music, and preparing for our performances and competitions this school year.
I will also be teaching a General Music class for 8th graders. We are going to learn some keyboard skills, learn how to read music, and even have a chance to compose our own keyboard melodies and accompaniments.
I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT YEAR!
Thank you for supporting my efforts to make your students competent middle school musicians. I appreciate the opportunity to influence them. Attached is a copy of the Choral Handbook for the 2017-2018 year. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
I will have after school hours for tutoring and extra rehearsals. You will be receiving a Chorus Calendar soon.
Students are expected to bring paper and pen or pencil to class daily. A pocket folder will be helpful to them to store their handouts, quizzes, and tests that they may want to bring home for further study and review.
My Daily Schedule:
6th Grade -- Connection I 8:05-8:47 7th Grade -- Connection I 9:55-10:37 8th Grade -- Connection I 1:25-2:05
Connection II 8:47-9:30 Connection II 10:37-11:20 Connection II 2:05-2:47
I will also be teaching a class from 12:25-1:10 at the Academy for Success for the first two 9 weeks of the year.
