Guess what?! There are audio files for K/1st grade students for their upcoming concert in order to practice. Please note that due to concert rescheduling, certain songs will be omitted due to the time of year in which the students will be performing. Please feel free however to enjoy the songs to practice and enjoy at home until the rescheduled concert has concluded and/or they are removed from the website!
Please keep in mind the following:
1. All songs are for educational purposes, and they are just plain fun!
2. Due to audio file setup and protection, a PC or laptop will only be able to access the audio files. Thank you for your understanding.
3. All songs are for rehearsal/practice/performance use, and are to remain on this website unless used for a performance/special event by the music instructor. All songs will be removed after their purposed events.
4. To honor and respect cultures, beliefs, etc., your child/children may be allowed to sing, quietly stand or sit and/or use instrumentation (discretion based upon limitation/prior notice by instructor with instrumentation for concert) on certain songs. Remember, while being respectful, it's about a wonderful experience for our kids and community together!
5. Practice, practice, practice outside of school and have fun!
