Chorus Calendar

We have had a great first week back to school!  It has been a lot of fun getting to know this year’s Middle and Upper School Chorus Champions, and we have already begun working on our singing technique.  Here is a link to our Chorus Calendar which includes all of our performances that have been scheduled for the year!  Please be sure to mark your calendars and invite family and friends to join us!

Chorus Handbook

I trust that you all are resting and relaxing on your last few days before joining us for Open House on Monday, August 13 and then the first day of school on Tuesday, August 14.  I am linking the Chorus Handbook for both Middle and Upper School students so that you have the opportunity to see and read through all of the information it contains before school begins.  If you have any questions or concerns about anything please do not hesitate to let me know!  I look forward to seeing and singing with you all very soon!

Welcome back!

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  I am so thrilled to be returning to IC Imagine and beginning a new role.  This year I will be teaching Middle and Upper School chorus, as well as taking on the position of Fine Arts Director for our school.  I am very excited to begin this new journey although I will definitely miss seeing our Lower School Champions in the music classroom!  Our Lower School Champions will have the privilege of learning with our new K-5 music teacher, Mrs. Lauren Mayberry.

It is going to be an amazing year for us at IC Imagine and I cannot wait to begin!  I look forward to seeing you at Open House on Wednesday, August 8!

Recorder Karate Website

Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students are working hard on their recorders!  As they continue to progress through their Recorder Karate notebooks, they may find the following website helpful: Recorder Karate Dojo

There are streaming audio options for them to practice with, as well as an interactive fingering chart that can be really beneficial.

Please let me know if you have questions or concerns and happy recorder playing!

Mark your calendar…

Make sure that you have these upcoming dates on your calendars so that you will not miss seeing all of the hard work that your Champions put in everyday at school!

Order a Recorder!

All third, fourth, and fifth grade students at IC Imagine will be playing recorders in their general music classes this year.  I will be making a bulk order of high quality instruments for anyone that would like to purchase one for their Champion.  If you are interested in purchasing a recorder for your student, please go to orgsonline and look under the “Special Orders” tab to place your order.  Each recorder is $6.50, which includes a zippered case, neck strap, and the instrument.  You may pay for the recorders online from now through Tuesday, January 23, then the order will be placed.

Champions are not required to purchase a recorder, but it is heavily encouraged.  If your student has their own recorder, they will be able to take it home to practice, as well as use it in class.  If they do not have their own, they will use a classroom recorder and will not be able to take it home with them.  If your student already has their own recorder from last year they are certainly welcome to use that again this year.

Please let me know if you have questions or concerns.  I am eager to begin this exciting musical unit with your Champions!

Lower School Chorus

Lower School Chorus will continue this year and is open to all 4th and 5th grade Champions!  Students should have received a letter in their folders today with all of the information and permission slip, but if you missed it you may click here for another copy. All Champions MUST turn in a signed permission slip!  Our first rehearsal will be on Tuesday, August 29 at 7:30 AM in the upstairs drama room.  Following that rehearsal, we will meet every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 7:30-8:00 AM.  Please contact me (erikawellman@icimagine.org) if you have any questions or need more information!
