harmony!!  check out this video!  5 sentences for tomorrow: what do you see, what do you like, what do you feel?  think of a cool name for a song.

the name of my song is “Red Plaid Bowtie.”  and i wrote it in honor of my fallen comrade – red plaid bowtie – who mysteriously vanished after the debut performance of Lane Tech’s Varsity Band at the 170th semi-annual concert in the auditorium of lane tech school of champions where there is an open lane but no royal road to learning…and the legacy continues!

also, check out THIS!

music appreciation 3rd period finish up reviews and discussions tonight and first 5 minutes of tomorrow.

8th period – vocab test wednesday

harmony – keep on practicing your christmas music.  prepare for a wednesday taping session!

keep the fiyah alive!

’cause singin’ seems to help a troubled soul!!!

during a routine singing test mr. flygt messed up his end of the deal and because of said actions presented the 3rd period music appreciation class with a 5 lb hershey candy bar.  everyone got an “A” on the test.
