Guitar Classes with Mrs. Risner
Second quarter is the start of yet two more guitar classes at Campus. The students are sounding fabulous already. Ask them to show you what they can play. Parents can even get some lessons from your child if you too have always wanted to play! There will be a casual in class performance for parents on January 16. The eighth grade performance is at 9:05 and the seventh grade performance is at 12:05. Both concerts will be in room 400.
Orchestra is in full swing at CMS. The beginners are learning more new notes each day, advanced players are working hard on technique and music, seventh and eighth grade classes each have five small ensembles working hard, and the Chamber Orchestra never sounded better! We have quite a few performances in the upcoming months. Check out our schedule! You should look at COLE on the class calendar for details of each event.

You may be wondering when we have time to learn all this music. The answer – skills lead us to the music – and performance is the outcome. Come and enjoy the wonderful skills and artistic awareness your child has learned. This is our time to give our gift of music back to you parents and the community.
