Welcome to Mr. Clark's Music Page
Welcome to the MES Band page!! It's going to be a great year of music and performance at Manasquan Elementary School! Here you can find all the information you need for a successful year in band and music class.
Check out this video on the benefits of playing an instrument!!
Welcome Back to MES!! We have all missed you over these past few months and are looking forward to seeing you back in school and ready to tackle this brand new year!
Band lessons will be starting back up soon in both an in-person limited lesson schedule and a virtual platform. I am very excited to fill the halls of MES with music once again and I am even more excited to see everyone and catch up after a long hiatus. An email to Parents and Students will be sent this week with further details and some ideas about how lesson scheduling will work. Please make sure to read it carefully. We may also try to have a virtual band parent meeting at some point in the next couple of weeks so discuss this year's gameplan. It will be very different from anything we have ever done, but we will meet all challenges head on!
4th Grade students interested in starting a band instrument will have until 9/24 to submit their interest paperwork and aquire an instrument. I will be around to speak with all 4th garde students soon to discuss band options at MES and distribute the necessary paperwork to enroll in our band program.
