Welcome to MCCPS Music!

Hello!

Look here for information about music at Marblehead Charter.

Here is some information you may find relevant about the program here at MCCPS.

Music is BIG here at MCCPS! It is well supported and provides ample opportunities for children to reach their potential. Many kids play 2-5 instruments here!

We have a challenging, yet engaging, curriculum that varies each year, most of the projects are integrated. See the draft of various activities below.

Music class currently meets online. See Schoology for classroom information and music learning.

there are extra music clubs from 2:50-3:20

  • Mondays –Honors Band Club with Ms. Smith 
  • Tuesdays – MCCPS Band Club with Ms. Smith 
  • Thursdays – MCCPS Chorus Club with Ms. Smith
  • Fridays –Jazz Combo Club with Ms. Smith                                                                                                                                                                        

1.  Mondays: MCCPS Honors Band 

Want time to practice your band instrument? Each player will have time to practice and make progress at their own pace. We will also learn music together. Performers should have experience playing their instrument and be willing to record/perform remotely. A band instrument is needed for this enrichment (Ms. Smith has more information about how to acquire an instrument). Concert band instruments include flute, clarinet, saxophone, bells/ percussion, bassoon, oboe, French horn, trombone, and trumpet. 
If you are currently at school and play wind or brass instruments and cannot play outside for this class, let me know. I will add you to the Google Classroom so that you can practice in your own time. 

 This is usually a year long class. Let’s have fun! 5th-8th grade/4th by audition.  

  
2. Tuesdays: Beginning Band Practice 

Want time to practice your band instrument, or start a new instrument? Each player will have time to practice and make progress at their own pace. A band instrument is needed for this enrichment (Ms. Smith has more information about how to acquire an instrument). Concert band instruments include flute, clarinet, saxophone, bells, percussion, bassoon, oboe, French horn, trombone, and trumpet. It’s a great time to start an instrument! This is usually a year long class. If you are currently at school and play wind or brass instruments and cannot play outside for this class, let me know. I will add you to the Google Classroom so that you can practice in your own time. See Band page. All ages.

     3. Thursdays: MCCPS Chorus

    This enrichment is meant for people who like to sing! Be prepared to learn harmony parts, practice, and potentially record. This is usually a year long class. Let’s have fun! If you are currently at school and cannot sing outside for this class, let me know. Your name will be added to the Google Classroom so that you can practice on your own time. This is usually a year long class. All ages. 

     
     
    4. Fridays: Advanced Jazz Combo
    This enrichment is for people who know how to play an instrument and are willing to improvise. We play jazz standards, original compositions, and funky grooves. People who take Jazz Combo usually take MCCPS Band Class or Honors Band as well. Time to make some seriously fun music! This is usually a year long class. 5th-8th grade. Auditions/Smith approval needed. Percussion sectionals will hopefully take place during school at some point in the future.
     
    Covid 19 State regulations: if a child is in school they will not be able to sing unless they are outside. However, they can practice and when they arrive home. If a child is in school they will not be able to play brass or woodwind instruments unless they are outside. However, they can still practice and participate when they are at home.
 

Other music opportunities include

1. Music Morning.  I might ask to have your work featured! If you’d like to perform for music morning please book an audition time with me. After your music selection is approved, practice often, and book an audition time with me. 

2. Music Concerts/Extravaganza. I might ask to have your work featured. This could include anything from piano performances, to singing, to any instrument that you’ve been practicing. MCCPS performing groups may be featured. It also includes some class projects.

3. Exhibition. Your music work should be placed in the portfolio section of schoology, including reflections.
