Please sign up for text updates I use the app ‘Remind’.  You can sign up by texting the club code to 81010.  If you have any questions about this process please e-mail me at or come and see me in room 701.

Guitar Grooves, please text @wcgui to 810-10

String Orchestra, please text @wcstr to 810-10


For string orchestra, instrument Loans are free of charge from Friday afternoon to Monday morning, instruments MUST be returned Monday morning so that they are available for use in music class.  Late returns will jeopardize future loans.

Please consider renting or purchasing an instrument for your child to enable daily practice.  For rentals, I am suggesting Harmony music Company, they are local to Chula Vista and have a good range of quality student instruments.  For purchase I recommend the Hoffmann Range if string instruments from Shar Music.  Please e-mail me if you wish to check the size of the instrument your child requires.



Beginning Guitar Grooves:  Yellow submarine, Okey Pokey, Get Up stand up, Eleanor Rigby

Beginning Strings: Statue of Liberty, The Ant Song, See The Little Monkey, Bow holds, First Finger Rock
