These drummers really rocked today!

The Recycled Orchestra of Paraguay

I received this wonderful book as a gift from two
amazing and really thoughtful Jefferson teachers
today after they attended an Author's Convention
over the weekend. Thank you so much, Ms. Leary
& Ms. Moynihan! I am so excited about the book!

I remember hearing about this from 60 Minutes...

Music Signs!

It's exciting when you walk into your Music Room
and you find music drawings for you! What a gift!

Most Important Musical Skill?

I subscribe to and enjoy viewing this man's videos!

Hump Day?

Just a poem I created this morning to inspire you (and me!)!

A Quiet TuNesday??

If your child had music today (i.e. if they have Mr.
Barrett for Music Class on TuNedays), then you've
probably already heard about how I didn't speak at
all during ANY of my Music Classes today! It was
fun, but was really challenging for students and me!

Yet, we still found a way to sing songs and move!


We had lots of Musicians of the Week today,
including this 4th grader who really rocks on the ukulele!

We also had a pianist, drummer, and two guitarists!

Classic Stones: Live!

This is only a few weeks away! Should be a fun show!


A little bit of Creedence Clearwater Revival today!

Celebrity SInger!

This 3rd Grader was excited to sing for us!


Here's a favorite song of many elementary students!

And here's Mr. Barrett's FAVORITE song of all time!

Walk To School Day!

It was a beautiful morning for our walk to Jefferson!

Some walked and some rode bikes!!

Black Velvet

Having a little bit of fun at the end of Music Class!

Pizza Pizza Daddy-O!

These students learned a very fun song and move
today in Music Class and even added some more!

Some dabbing...

Some flossing...


Happy 78th Birthday, John Lennon (The Beatles)!

Here are two of my favorite John Lennon songs...

Hope you have a tuneful TuNesday today, everyone!
