 Welcome to the Parks and Rec Music and Animation Classes!  Here you will find a short description of what was covered in each class.   Come here to see what you should be practicing!


Mr. Jamie often asks "Are there any answers?"  The answer to give when he asks that is "Forty Two" (it is from "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." It is the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything - An alien race built a giant super computer to figure out what the meaning of life is.  After millions of years of computing it came up with the answer "42.").

     2) Next to Each blank to fill in there is a number.  For instance if it was ___2 and the note was a D it would then say D2. 
    3) Above each note is a number.
