Well, here we go again!

Hope your week has gone well. I've been practicing on my trombone and used it to play along on a couple of hymns for my church's online worship.  5th graders, how are the solos coming?  I'd love to hear you when you think you are ready to send me a video.  6th graders, how are your hymn projects coming?  As I said, the hardest part is to get started.  Remember flutes just have to write their part up an octave. Clarinets go up 1 whole step and Horns go up 5 whole steps.  Remember that your key has changed from the original.  Send me your hymns however you can and I'll let you know how you did.

Remember, if you think you have your current lesson pages sounding good, you can always move ahead in your book. If you are able, record your songs and send them to my email box. I promise to let you know how you did. 

Thanks for keeping up your practicing and hope to see you soon!

Have fun,

Mr. Rutt

Online Music Fun:



This program requires Adobe Flashplayer, so allow it to run.  The program is a note naming game. You can choose treble cleff or bass cleff or both.  All of you should choose TREBLE CLEF, except trombone and tuba.  You can use your mouse, touch pad or keyboard to name your notes.  FYI: the better you get, the faster it goes. It's pretty fun.


Ephesians 5:9

for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth
