  • Welcome to the Parker School Music Room !

    My name is Mrs. Gross and I teach Vocal and General Music here at Parker School to about 510 students each week. We have a beautiful Music Room with a piano and many other instuments from the Percussion family.

    Parker students sing, dance, chant, play, and create music during our lessons. Many of our students participate in performing groups, too. This year we have the Melody Maker Chorus, Second Grade Chorus and the Orff Club.

    You can find out what we are up to in our classes and in our groups by using the buttons on the left. I'll be seeing you soon and remember - keep a song in your heart!


    Here are some quotes about music for you to read.
