The Video News Team is working together to present the daily Mirror Lake News. In our tenth year, our news program is a vital part of
our school's culture. Students and staff depend on it for information, training, and enjoyment. We are proud of our program.

Four piano keyboarding, music exploratory classes are offered at Mirror Lake. 4th hour includes advanced piano keyboarding
students who are using Suzuki volumes I and II. All classes include strands of history, theory, movement, appreciation, sight reading,
listening, audience etiquette and performance.

5th and 6th hours include 6th graders new to music and piano keyboarding. 7th hour is considered a Music Exploratory class which
includes both 7th and 8th graders. Some of the 8th graders are third year Mirror Lake piano students. Others in the class are new
learners or 2nd year students.

All students are offered an opportunity to attend the Student Dress Rehearsals of the Opera and the Nutcracker. The Opera Bus is our transportation to
these evening events. Field trips are planned for advanced students. This year we will be going to the Performing Arts
Center and enjoying intimate theater by touring Cyranos. Lunch will follow at the Captain Cook.

April recitals will share our expertise to all parents and friends. Dates are not yet decided.
