“Wolfie’s Quest” Songs

***WOLFIE’S QUEST DATE CHANGE: JANUARY 17TH AT 6PM!!!

Hi Folks!

Hopefully by now you’ve caught wind of the fact that we will be doing a Kindergarten-Fourth grade play! Typically this play takes place in February, but this year, as I’ll be taking a leave of absence to go teach in Southern Vermont for some months (more info to come) the play will go up on JANUARY 17 at 6pm!!! We have plunged into rehearsals in 3rd and 4th grade, and in K-2 we’ve only just begun to talk about it.

I have started making videos of the songs for students to sing along with! You’ll hear the weird computer-version of the pit band playing in the background, this I think will be somewhat helpful to students until we can sing with the real middle school pit band!

I’ll add videos to this page as I finish them. Encourage students (3rd and 4th grade) to look at their scripts as they watch the video to make sure they know when they sing and when they don’t. It also helps visual learners to memorize the lyrics if they have their script. Click the links-it will take you to videos in Google Drive.

Send Me On My Way (Sung by 3rd and 4th graders)

Endless Night  (Sung by the 3rd and 4th graders)

Come Away With Me (Sung by the 4th Grade)

Honey Suckle Rose (Sung by the 3rd Grade)

All You Need Is Love (Sung by the Kindergarten-4th Grade)

 

 

Raz MaTazz Auditions!!

Announcing Auditions for:
THE RAZ MATAZZ!

What is The Raz MaTazz?

Folsom’s Select band that meets every Tuesday and Thursday BEFORE school (7:25)! We play harder music than in regular band and students are expected to be practicing more outside of school.

What do I need to do for the audition?

  1. Play your concert Bb Scale AND another scale of your choosing
  2. Play from the lowest note you know to the highest note you know
  3. Choose a solo song to play-something you can play beautifully
  4. Rhythm Sight reading-KK will give you this at the audition but you can practice by working through rhythms in your book or on the Rhythm Studies paper

Who Should Audition?

Any musician who can commit to practicing on their own whether it be during open music room, over the weekend, or at night. If you know that you will not touch your instrument outside of band rehearsal then Raz MaTazz is not for you. If you are willing to work hard I am willing to work with you in this ensemble.

Star Wars-by the 5th-8th Grade Band

Here is a video we put together of the 5th through 8th grade band playing “Highlights from Star Wars” by John Williams and arranged by Paul Cook. This piece was extremely challenging and I wanted our hard work to be commemorated with a video. Thank you to all of our videographers and our amazing Folsom Musicians!

Better When I’m Dancing Folsom 2017

Happy Summer Folsom Friends!

Here’s the video we showed on the last day of school at our Celebration of Learning Assembly. Look at those smiles and that laughter. We couldn’t ask for a better community of students, staff, and families. Until next year, have a great summer!
