Welcome to music at Fairmount Park

Dear Families and Students-

I am so excited to be your music teacher this year at Fairmount Park! We have a beautiful new building and an amazing new music room! You can always find out the latest music news and access this website anytime at www.mrpendergrass.com.

In addition to seeing all the students for general music classes during the school day this year, there are some other music opportunities I hope you will take advantage of including:

  • Choir before school for grades 1-5. Students will learn how to be confident, expressive singers with a variety of music, including songs from other cultures and in different languages. Unlike many of the before school activities, choir meets the entire school year so students can sing at various concerts and district festivals during the year. You need to sign-up by filling out an enrollment form- just click on the CHOIR tab above for the form and information.
  • Instrumental music for grades 4-5. Students can learn how to play a band or orchestra instrument at Fairmount Park. Click on the INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC tab above for all the details.
  • Friday Assemblies. Any student can perform at our regularly scheduled 10:00 a.m. Friday assemblies. Singers, pianists, instrumentalists from all grades are encouraged to perform for the student body at this assembly. Mr. Pendergrass will explain how this works at one of our Friday Assemblies very soon.

And parents, if you have a music skill to share or want to volunteer in the music program, please send me an email: kependergrass@seattleschools.org. I’m looking forward to meeting you and making music with my new Falcon friends.
