Welcome to Ravenwood's music room where something musical is always happening! I teach an "integrated" music curriculum in which I include the other educational subjects in to my teaching of music whenever the opportunity arises. We also have a school choir consisting of students from the Third through Sixth grades. The choir usually has approximately sixty students and performs throughout the school year both in school and at local community events. Our musical year may consists of a Winter Musical Program (play) by grades First through Third in December. We have an annual Talent Show open to all students by audition.
