    Dear CSHS Music Parents and Students,

    As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, Arizona schools are closed for the remainder of the year and CCUSD is transitioning to online learning for the remainder of the school year. Here’s some important info so you know what to expect:

    Online coursework begins Thursday, April 2, 2020.

    Online Resources: All coursework will be available in the Google Classroom for each class. Google Classrooms for CSHS Band, Jazz Band and Guitar have been in place since the beginning of the year. If for some reason, you are not in that class, please email me and I will send you the code.

    • SmartMusic - Band and Jazz Band students will be expected to do some playing in SmartMusic software. It is free for the remainder of this school year. Check the Google Classroom for instructions on how to log in and use the program.
    • CMI Learn - Guitar students will be expected to complete assignments through Consonus Music Institute at cmilearn.org. It is also free for the remainder of the school year. Check the Google Classroom for instructions on how to log in and use the program.

    Weekly Assignments: The coursework for all CSHS Instrumental Music classes will be posted on Monday morning and due by Sunday night at 11:59 PM. The weekly calendar will contain suggested due dates to help keep students organized, but the work will all be due by Sunday night.

    Attendance: In compliance with state guidelines, I will be taking attendance every school day. Attendance will be taken using a “Daily Question” in the Google Classroom, which will have to be answered by 2:00 PM. The Daily Question will be used for attendance purposes and will only be available on scheduled school days.

    Communication: Should you or your student need additional help or information, please feel free to contact me by email at kbrady@ccusd93.net Students can also schedule virtual office hours with me if needed for individual needs or more in-depth questions. I am willing and able to provide virtual office hours on Zoom. Please email to schedule an appointment for this.

    Thanks, as always, for your cooperation and flexibility during this challenging and unprecedented time. I hope you and your family stays safe and healthy!
