    Welcome to the Chinquapin Indian Music Department, a community for students to aspire and achieve greatness in music and within themselves. The Indian Music Department is made up of performance ensembles, in which students will learn musical concepts, play/sing music that is challenging, yet attainable, develop responsibility, gain a healthy sense of pride, become a musician/singer and learn lessons that will be carried with them the rest of their lives. The Music Department will afford members enriching experiences by performing at concerts, assemblies, community events, festivals and contests. You are invited and encouraged to come and be apart of the excitement! Performance dates will be posted on this site. Volunteers are always welcome and appreciated. There are many facets in which one can become a part of this learning community, so come talk with me and let us find out where you will prosper. I look forward to a successful year and excited about working with every part and member of this great community! Please do not hesitate to contact me through email or school phone if any inquiries arise. I have an open door policy and do not mind conversing with anyone during my office hours. Thank you!
     
    Sincerely,
    Mr. Rodriguez, Music Educator
