Music Class Update

Students at P.S./I.S. 217 (Roosevelt Island School) are already busy rehearsing for the Winter Concert.  But singing is not the only thing they are learning during their music periods.  According to Harold Solow, PS 217 music teacher and Music Director for the school concerts, students in grades K through 2 play drums and other percussion instruments.  Children will have a choice of other instruments when they reach 3rd grade (flute, violin, French horn, trombone, clarinet, etc.).  In the meantime, Mr. Solow suggests parents taking their children to the concerts and exposing them to a variety of sounds from different instruments.  This will help students make informed decision when choosing the instrument they would like to play most by the 3rd grade.
