Welcome to Burke County Middle School Chorus

We are off to a running start on our second semester of Middle School Chorus. The focus this semester is on sight-reading music. Students have a wonderful opportunity to earn a spot in a Georgia State Competition in March. We also are preparing for our All-
County Concert, February 22, and our Spring concert, .
I am also still teaching a General Music class for 8th graders. We are learning  keyboard skills, music reading. , and learning the innovative techniques and philosophies of modern composers. Students will work in groups to compose and perform their own compositions.  
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.
