Virtual Play-in with your Group Class
Due to the current social distancing situation, we have decided to offer our families two Virtual Play-in dates when each group class will meet online. This will provide our students a way to connect with each other and their group class teacher and break the social isolation in a musical way.
Please be ready for a Zoom meeting with your group class at your regular group class time on Saturday, April 25th and May 2nd. This will include all of our group classes and rhythmic reading classes but not Tanglewood orchestra or Concorde. You will receive an invitation from your teacher the night before each meeting.
In order to reduce the likelihood of a time conflict between classes for siblings, we are moving our rhythmic reading classes to the afternoon on those two same days:
1 pm: Rhythmic Reading 3
2 pm: Rhythmic Reading 1A
3 pm: Rhythmic Reading 1B
4 pm: Rhythmic Reading 2
Caroline will be emailing the invitation to your meeting the night before the class.
Rhythmic Reading: A message from Caroline
Hello rhythmic reading families! I hope you are all doing well.
When you have completed your homework from our last class, please scan it or take a picture of it and email it to me at: email@example.com
To make it as convenient and as safe as possible for everyone, we have decided to bundle the grocery cards for April, May and June. These will be packaged and hand delivered to your home. We don't want them to be left unattended so keep your eye out for an email to set up a convenient time for someone to stop by - at a safe distance of course!
We are coming to the end of the school year which means time to think about the next. We are proceeding with the regular registration process, planning for business as usual in the fall. If that changes we will, of course, keep you informed as we know more. You should be receiving registration information in the next couple of weeks. We are extending the deadline to mid-May.
Show everyone how you're keeping the music going

Call for COVID-19 Performances
Calling all students to submit performances to be posted on the SSSG YouTube Channel. We want to hear how you are continuing your work on your instrument and sharing your music during this time of social distancing.
Make a video of your child performing a polished piece that he or she would like to share with the world and we will share it on the SSSG YouTube channel. Some of the videos may also be shared on our social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram).
Performances can be accompanied or unaccompanied, family members playing together as a group, recordings of online lessons or practice sessions (playing a duet with your teacher or practice buddy). Let your imagination run wild!
How to record your video: No need for fancy equipment! Just use your phone or your camera. Record at a lower resolution to ensure the file isn't too big: 1080p HD 30fps is a good video setting for this purpose.
How to submit your video:
- Fill out our submission form
- Upload your video to our COVID-19 Performance Dropbox
