Hershey Memories

As we begin the process of planning for a spring 2014 music trip, I thought I would bring out the archival footage of our trip to Hershey PA last year. In 2014 we are planning to travel to Virginia Beach and Busch Gardens. Can't wait!

New Video!!! Behind the scenes at District Rehearsal

You end up with some time on your hands while chaperoning a six hour district rehearsal. Here is a short video that gives a "behind the scenes" look at one of the district rehearsals.


Central District Rehearsal

The Central District Music Festival rehearsal was an amazing evening of music making Friday night. The students from Grafton were exceptional in all aspects of the event. Their dedication throughout the second night of back to back, intense six-hour rehearsals was evident. I was impressed with their musicianship and stamina. I will be posting a short "behind the scenes" video of the rehearsal very soon to this site. Stay tuned.

New Information Center for Grafton Music!!

GHS Music is happy to unveil a new format for sharing information with our GHS Music Community. You are currently viewing the new and evolving blog home for GHS Music. Through this blog portal, I will be sharing updates on group activities, performances, upcoming events, posting performance clips, audio, practice tips, etc. Ultimately, student work and the ability to collaborate and evaluate our progress, will find a home in similar formats.
