Hello! Welcome back to school and welcome to my page! My name is Miss. VanderVoort. I graduated from SUNY Potsdam with a Bachelor's in Music Education with a concetration in trumpet. I am excited to work with your children during the 2020-2021 school year. This year I am teaching 5th grade band, Junior band (grades 6-8), Senior band (grades 9-12), and General Music 8! Band will look very different this year for all grades, but I am confident that we will still have a great year of music making! I look forward to getting to know your children and inspiring them to be the best musicians they can be!

Band is first and foremost a class just like any other. Students are expected to practice 10 minutes a day, similar to a daily math work sheet, or social studies homework. While we do not have an official concert this year, students should still work hard and be ready for any performance opportunities that may come our way. General music is expected to build a stronger understanding of music and how it works. Listening to songs on the radio, or any other music streaming service is a great way to hear what you have learned applied in real songs!
