Music In Our Schools Month: Reflections



MIOSM Music In Our Schools Month bulletin board and student quotes



During March, students complete a short questionnaire where they respond to a couple of prompts.  I explain that March is Music In Our Schools Month where we get to celebrate all the musical opportunities we have at school and that the questionnaire is a chance to share our thoughts about music.

I type up the responses and include them in the weekly orchestra email and send them to staff and administrators, wishing them all a happy Music In Our Schools Month.  And then, of course, the responses also end up on the bulletin board.  I do these early in the month so students and staff get to enjoy reading them as they walk by the orchestra room for the rest of the month.  Orchestra students like to read what their classmates have written as well as spot their own responses from the lists.




Another week in March is our tour week where we perform our Solo/Ensemble pieces for a class.  Pictures from those performances get added to the bulletin board, and then the last week of March we get a request day during full orchestra.  The week before, the question of the week is to put in a request for full orchestra so that I have time to organize the requests and figure out the order of pieces to make the best use of our time together.
