Mr. B
  • Dear Students and Parents,

     

    We Made It!  

    This final quarter this year was full of surprises, new ways to learn, and challenges that we faced together.  We have overcome those challenges and the virtual learning was a successful endevour!  I wish you all happiness and rest for these summer months to come!  I will miss all of you!  Please continue to send me emails or messages on TEAMs on any new music that you find and wish to share.  Have fun and stay safe!

     

    Practice a lot and listen even more,

     Josh Barbre

     


  • Dear Students,

     

    Welcome Back for a fifth week of virtual learning!  

    I am glad to see students being able to utilize this website and the TEAMs page to continue doing work.  This week will be used to catch up on all the work that you may have missed in the first four weeks of virtual teaching.  Please review all music assignments that you may have missed and use this time to turn in any missed assignments. 

     

    I hope you all are doing well and please contact me if you have any question/comments/concerns.

     

    Practice a lot and listen even more,

  • Dear Students,
     
    I hope you all are having fun and staying safe and healthy!  As much as I love being home, I miss making music with all of you. 
     
    We know that this is a scary time, but I wanted to remind all of you that music does wonders for our emotional health.  Use this time to make music, write music, and share music with ones in your home.  Parents, use this time to share music that you listened to when things got scary for you as a child.  Use this time to grow together and use music as one of many connections that can bring you closer together.  Please let me know how you are all doing via email!  I would love to see the lyrics to the songs you write.  I would love to hear the stories of shared music.  Most importantly, I would love to see that you are all doing alright.
     
    Send me things via joshua.barbre@slps.org.
     
    Practice a lot and Listen even more,
