Summer Lessons -
We had a total of 81 students sign up to take summer lessons. That's amazing! It's been great having students making music at the otherwise very quiet school this summer. Thank you for being so dedicate and being willing to work on your instrument this summer.
Marching Band -
I have joined the staff of the Hershey High School Marching Band! We've been having a blast so far and it feels good to be back on their field. My involvement at the high school will NOT affect my elementary schedule in anyway, but it will give us some opportunities to collaborate with the high school musicians in the future...*wink*wink*
We start Band Camp next week and I'm super pumped to put the music on the field. I hope you will stop by a football game and check out the band this season!
This summer I've been taking a series of graduate course on technology. As our school district moves toward a one-to-one model with ipads I'm exploring ideas of how we can integrate more technology into our rehearsals and and the instrumental music program. If you have any ideas of how you would like to use more technology please let me know!
I got married!
It's true! This summer, my now husband, and I choose to have a private ceremony in the National Redwood Forest in California. Afterward, we also traveled to Yosemite National Park and San Francisco. I am still in the process of changing my name, so in the meanwhile I can still be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have changed my instagram (@obiemusic) and obviously my website (www.obie-music.com). I will let everyone know as soon as my email changes. I know its a big change, but now I'm Mrs. Obielecki!!
