Robert Anderson Strings/Orchestra students:
If you did not pick up a copy of the All-County audition exerpts the last week of school, then get yours from Mrs. Gosnell between 10 am and 11:30 am on June 8, 2018.
All-Region audition music: The Scales and Etudes were handed out in May. There is to be more music released in August. Please see your Strings/Orchestra teacher in August for the rest of the music, if you plan to audition for All-Region. Also, you will need to complete your registration very close to the beginning of school, so if you plan to participate in All-Region, please do not wait until the end of August to let him know. (:
To my Robert Anderson family:
I leave a piece of my heart with you. I have shared a large portion of my life with you, and I treasure the memories.
Mr. Matthew Speer, who will be coming in the fall, was my sponsoring teacher when I was student teaching and finishing college to be able to become a teacher. He is energetic, and likes to have fun with his students. I think you will enjoy working with/learning from him. I have enjoyed working with him in the past. If circumstances allow, later in the year, I hope to be back occassionally to lend a hand with Strings after school. Good luck to each of you.
To my New Prospect community:
I look forward to becoming part of life at New Prospect. I am excited for a new chapter in my story, and in the story of music at New Prospect. I so appreciate Mrs. Shaw's support as I have prepared to transition to New Prospect. She is an immensely talented woman. I am not coming to replace her; that cannot be done. I come with a completely different set of strengths than she has, and I look forward to using them to invest in the lives of the children who will soon be running Anderson and beyond. Happy summer!
