Open House this week

Porters Point School will have our Open House on Thursday, September 19, 2019 beginning at 6:30 pm.  Please make sure you stop in the Art and Music Room to see us. We will have an on-going slide show, so come on in!!  Ms. Vella (Art) and Ms. Mutz (Music) look forward to seeing everyone...  

Welcome to Music at Porters Point School

All students have music class once a week for 40 minutes. The goal of music really is for students to discover the musicians they already are, and hopefully introduce them to some new ways they may develop their musicianship. During our class time, students sing, dance/move, play instruments, listen to, and create music. 

This year is an artist-in-residency year. We will have our whole school performance in March, 2020. More info will be coming out soon! We have established a three-year cycle of performances to include two years  of musicals and the third year features an artist-in-residency. Last year our school performed the musical Panda And The Moon. So, this year and next will be musical performances. I will post the most up-to-date information on all our musical happenings right here on this blog. Stay tuned!!
Ms. Mutz hopes that this blog will help inform you about what happens in music class by showing some of the children in action.  If you view this blog with your children, they may recognize some of the songs, poems, dances, instruments, etc.  This may help them to teach you what they have learned.  For your convenience, you may view the Posts by Grade Level if you do not wish to view the whole blog and just want to see what your child's grade level is doing.  As always, if you have any questions about this blog, or about music in general, please let Ms. Mutz know:  martha.mutz@colchestersd.org
