A lyrical day...

Missy has come back for another visit! She'll be in Troy this Monday and Tuesday. Today Missy met with the young composers of DMS to discuss what they had uncovered about Troy, NY in their research.

 Some of our notes on topics and lyric writing.

Rhonda Hermance, music teacher extraordinaire, talks to the students about topic selection.

Three of Missy's students!

We'll be back tomorrow with more photos and updates. Students will begin to delve into lyric writing tomorrow!
