A few musicals are opening at high schools in Maryland, incl. Beauty & the Beast this weekend in Elkton & Owings Mills.
A volunteer at a Maryland h.s. has been charged with sexual assault. Police say he engaged in a sexual relationship with a female student in the band.
People who keep practicing for ~20 mins after they master a skill actually lock in that learning. New learning probably won’t interfere with it either.
From the White House, we’ve heard that certain fantasies are “alternative facts.” This might be acceptable in a high school musical.
Students decide early in life if they have any musical “talent,” and that predicts whether they take music classes later. They don’t see music ability as a skill.
At a Catholic high school, it’s easy to perform sacred music at a choir concert. Public schools, too, often perform sacred music. Good thing.
If you play a musical instrument (or two…), you response time to sensory stimuli may be faster than it is for non-musicians. No causation here, just an interesting correlation.
Marching units have been announced for President Trump’s inaugural parade. Some supporters aren’t happy about it.
21 marching bands filled the air in Pasadena with music and entertained a TV audience of millions for the 128th Tournament of Roses Parade.
Our list of all the musicals expected to be performed at IL high schools this spring is getting longer. Please let us know if we missed yours.
