Welcome to Mrs. Behr's
Hello Band Parents and Students. I have been teaching in North Bellmore for 20 years. I have a BFA from Buffalo University and a Masters Degree from Dowling College in Special Education. I teach Band instruments at both Dinkelmeyer and Martin Ave Elementary. I also conduct a Jazz band that is comprised of students from both of my buildings and have been the lead conductor for the District Festival Band. If you ever have any questions please feel free to contact me by email Dbehr@northbellmoreschools.org
I hope all of you are feeling healthy and enjoying this time with your families. In light of the recent school closure, all band assignments will be on www.essentialelementsinteractive.com
Please log in and check the assignments listed. Please have your child submit all recordings, remember first they must save it then go to all recordings and submit.
Practice all band music and record using the all-music tab
Use the belt log as a guide for submissions.
I will be uploading instructional videos as I see needed. Currently there are some new drum pad warmups posted. All wind players should watch the tonguing videos. Please check the resources tab regularly for new videos.
All beginners should also use www.musictheory.net to practice note reading.
Stay healthy and I look forward to seeing all of you again in the near future,
all NYSSMA festivals have been cancelled for the 2020 season
