This is going to be such an exciting year for all grades levels. I look forward to working alongside students to create a safe and fun rehearsal environment where they can obtain their goals and become established musicians. All of our assignments and downloadable documents will be accessible through the announcements page and the Charms Website. I will do my best to keep these updated weekly. If you ever have any questions feel free to email me at tyler.hart@dcsms.org .
