    MES Student Music Creations



    The MES Student Music Creations slideshow will be released  June 1, 2021 for families to view.  The MES students’ One Slide assignment has given students time to realize artistic ideas and work through interpretation and presentation with recorded, composed and/or arranged music for a digital venue during a time where live performances have not been an option.  I used the Chromebooks to create a level (musical) playing field where all students have a tool to express chosen musical ideas that they have been exploring since the middle of January.  

    I have enjoyed this project immensely;  yet look forward to live performances next year!  Students will have an opportunity to see their class´ creations in a digital music recital during music class the week of May 24th.
