Kay Mayer - Orchestra Teacher
Dear 5th-7th orchestra parents:
Welcome to the 2016-17 school year. I am excited to begin another year of music making with your child a part of Holland Public Schools orchestras. This year marks my 29th year of teaching music. Prior to coming to Holland Public in 1999, I taught for Hartford Public, Bangor Public and Fennville Public Schools. My area of teaching has spanned beginning to high school band, some general music, middle/high school choirs, and middle school drama. I have been teaching middle school orchestra for the past 14 years at Holland. My personal musical outlet is fulfilled by playing french horn in the Grand Rapids Symphonic Band and the St. Francis de Sales brass ensemble.
In addition to giving students a solid foundation of orchestral playing skills, I look to introduce new elements of playing skills, playing opportunities and musical genres each year.
I will utilize the web, emailing via our school class messenger, student take home and mailings to communicate details about performances and news. Please contact me via email with any questions or comments that occur throughout the year.
