Classroom Music and After School Choir

The joy of music is shared with all students at Quail Run Elementary! 

 

My name is Suzanne Thomas, and I have been the vocal music teacher at Quail Run Elementary since the school opened.  I am a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and have taught vocal music for over 20 years.  Prior to moving to the San Ramon area, I was the Children's Program Director for Capitol Opera and a board member of Sacramento Community Opera Theatre.  I have an extensive background in opera, musical theatre and concert performance.  

 

CLASSROOM MUSIC:

All students at Quail Run participate in classroom music lessons in singing, playing rhythm instruments and learning music facts and theory. In addition, third grade students learn to play the recorder, a flute-like wind instrument.  Students also perform in grade-level evening concerts for parents and family.  Please check the school calendar for those dates. 

 

AFTER SCHOOL CHOIR:

For those third, fourth and fifth grade students who love to sing, we have an after-school choir program. Quail Choir is a non-audition choir open to third, fourth and fifth grade students. Treble Clefs is an audition choir open to fourth and fifth grade students who pass an audition test. Choir members are given additional performance opportunities throughout the year.

 

If you have any questions, see my homepage or contact me at sjthomas@srvusd.net

Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me
-ABBA
