Music Club

First Avenue Music Club Membership Campaign
The Music Club Wants you!!
 
The First Avenue Music Club is an elite organization that involves our director, Mr. Murphy, and parents of students in the music program. The music club is the backbone of the music program, and is the biggest reason that the program at First Avenue is strong every year, providing your student(s) with the best equipment and opportunities to be successful. Another need that has arisen during the era of distance learning is more instructional support for our students. Mr. Murphy is only one person, and sometimes there are 60-70 students within one music class, which can be an immense responsibility, considering that the goal is to get the students as much great quality instruction as possible. Supportive instructional coaches would be such a big help to Mr, Murphy and the music students, providing for more instructors to be able to split classes into smaller working groups, so that the students would receive more one-on-one or smaller group instruction, which would make the opportunity for success far greater than a classroom with 60-70 students participating at once.
 
The Music Club membership is only $25, and comes with a First Avenue Music Club T-shirt, which can be worn all around town to show your support of the music club, your student, and the pride you have for the elite and successful music program at FA. There will be an informational meeting on Wednesday, September 9, at 7pm via
Zoom (link will be sent to all music parents soon via Google Classroom and email).
 
If there are any immediate questions, please email Mr. Murphy @ smurphy@ausd.net.
