Everything you need for the summer is on this page. Don't worry about the other tabs, i.e., assignments. However, you can look at the review materials tab and see what resources are listed for each chapter.
Test alert - There will be a test on note ID, rhythm, and key signature ID on Friday, August 9.
If you have questions on anything please text me at 706-589-2606 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I respond better to text messages because I don't always check my email.
I know most of this information is review, but I want to make sure everybody is at the same point when we start up in August.
