(Answers Below)

We start the year studying Carnival of the Animals and end with Peter and the Wolf, both are important musical works written for children!


We will be making our own instruments as soon as we have the supplies!  We welcome donations such as show boxes and paper towel rolls.  Then you’ll get to see them soon when they come home in a few months!
