Thank you to Luke Folger (a.k.a. Unigen) for visiting WHEELS last week and working with 3rd and 7th grade music students! He showed us how he composes and improvises using loops. He even recorded the 3rd graders playing various instruments, and then improvised using samples from those recordings.

On Monday our 7th grade music students had the opportunity to learn from violist Nardo Poy, a member of Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. Thank you to Access Orpheus for making this possible! Also, Mr. Johnson and a 7th grade student had the pleasure of speaking about their experiences with Access Orpheus at Orpheus Chamber Orchestra's annual gala earlier this month.
