Hello SMP families! We hope this page will be a helpful educational resource during this time. We will be continually updating with more activities, videos, and references, so stay tuned!
UPDATE: We are thrilled to announce that we are now offering virtual lessons for our current SMP & MSMP students starting May 4th! Our staff are looking forward to seeing student and volunteer faces again and continue the music making in real time. Click the button below to sign up!
We will continue to post activities (known as "snacktivity" during programming) here weekly. Don't hesitate to reach out to Mr. B at email@example.com with any questions!
You can find lesson plans here. These explain what students should be practicing every week and provide helpful tips and instructions.
Videos & Recordings
This page contains videos and recordings of the repertoire you have been working on. You can find full ensemble videos as well as part-by-part recordings provided by our volunteers. More part recordings are coming daily as our volunteers continue to provide them.
This is a general resource page that contains how-tos on everything from instrument care to reading music. There are tips specific to certain instruments as well as general information on rhythm and note-reading.
Check this page for online tools such as metronomes and tuners to help you practice effectively.
Concerts & Live Performances
Because we no longer have the ability to attend concerts in-person, many musicians are posting free videos and live-streams of their performances! Check some of them out here.
