Music Room Rules and Procedures Videos for Primary and Kindergarten

Dear Parents:
During your child's first music class they will be shown the following grade appropriate video, detailing my expectations for behavior in music class. I've found this to be very effective, as all classes receive the same information. After viewing, we engage in a class discussion to make sure every student is aware of the expectations from the start of the year.  :)
