Please note that now that we've started with instruments for the older grades, my extra help schedule has changed.

Students who are proficient on their instruments are welcome to come in at the appropriate time to help other students - especially grade 8 students who would like to be considered for the music award. It's a great opportunity to show commitment to the music program, help fellow BPS students (and me) and develop your leadership skills.

Due to an unforeseen change in my timetable, band practice (which starts in January) will take place on Day 3's this year (rather than Day 5's as has been advertised). Sorry for any inconvenience.

Message from COSMO MUSIC:

If you're choosing to rent an instrument from COSMO music:

 "when placing your order, choose YEARLY and not Semester as the rental period.
This will give you the correct December to June rate."

Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to formally announce the new "box" on the right side of the blog... For easier access I have posted links to the various games/quizzes that I have created/found right on the homepage. 

I hope this helps! Happy studying!

Students should be performing at at least Gr. 8 RCM or its equivalent and have good sight reading and listening skills. They can provide high school community hours in return for this voluntary opportunity. Please let me know if you're interested.

The band music for this year is ready to go. If you have access to an instrument, or would just like to have your music in advance, all you have to do is ask!

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had a great summer! My summer was wonderful, but I'm glad to be back!

I was very happy with how the blog worked these past two years, so I would like to continue it this year. On my blog you will be able to find:
     - updates on what's going on in my room (whether we're working on music or dance) 
     - information on upcoming projects and tests
     - information on Spring Symphony (when the time comes)
     - sound clips of music that we will be playing in class for band kids (when the time comes)
     - a guideline of how much you should have practiced each week, organized by grade (again, when the time comes)
     - my extra help schedule/room availability

I've organized it by grade groups, so please be sure to check out the appropriate page for you or your child. Be sure to check back often, as I update my blog regularly.

Have a great year!

Mrs. Frankfort
