Mr. Noah J Kirby
As we move forward with virtual learning, please see below for all Choral, Keyboarding, and Music Appreciation class links and expectations. This page is here to help you find links to your Google Classroom, where you will find all the materials you need to be successful in our new path to musical excellence! I know that these next several weeks are going to be very different for all of us, especially as most of my classes are performance-based, but we will make it through this together!
As always, if you have any questions, you can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
