• Welcome to Miss Conley's Music Classroom!




    Welcome students and parents!! This page is a place to come and see what we are doing in music class this year, as well as keep up with upcoming music events and ways to get involved. I am very excited to be here and cannot wait to get to know you and your children!  

    If there are ever any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me at nconley@d47.org and I would be more than happy to help!

    I MISS YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!! I have been using SeeSaw as my main place to communicate directly with students, please reach out to me there or by email if your students needs anything!


     I am excited and a little anxious to see how this whole eLearning thing goes, but I'm ready to jump right in with all my wonderful students and parents! The encore team at Canterbury came up with an Encore Bingo Board, which I will post below. 


    Encore Bingo Board Instructions

    Below are all the Encore Bingo Boards.  They should also be sent out by your child's classroom teacher. Your student should follow their normal encore schedule when using the Bingo Boards.  

    For example; on the day you have art, you will pick one activity from the art column and cross it off, the next day if you have library, choose from that column, etc.

    Find your grade level, and as always, email me if you have any questions!

    Due to all the unknowns in the world right now, the musical has been temporarily postponed. I will continue posting updates on the musical as they come! Thank you for your patience, and as always, feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns!

    Hello again!


    I thought I would do a small update on what we have been doing in music thus far! The fifth graders made it through their musical and were EXCELLENT!!! I am unbelievably proud and lucky that I had such an amazing group to work with. Forth graders worked on xylophones and creating their own compositions for the instruments, as well as starting recorder karate! We will resume on the recorders after break and we're all very excited about that. The third graders have been working on note identification as well as xylophones! After break, we will hit the ground running on our Spring Musical! It is going to be a really fun show called "Go Fish!" that takes place under the sea! I'm excited to work with these kids and know the show will be awesome. The second graders have been working on note and rhythm notation and dictation, as well as learning lots of fun games! We just recently finished learning about The Nutcracker! First graders and kindergarteners have been learning simple rhythmic and notation identification with a lot of games and songs! We will continue to deepen our learning after break. I hope everyone has a restful holiday break and I can't wait to see everyone when we get back!

  • Beginning of The Year

    Hello students and parents!

    I thought I would take a minute to update everyone on what has been going on in music class the last couple weeks. 

    As I am new here, I have really enjoyed spending these last two weeks getting to know students, parents, and staff at Canterbury! In class, we have been playing a lot of get-to-know-you musical games such as Musical Hot Potato, Name That Tune, Poison Rhythm, and many more. I wanted to dedicate the beginning of school strictly to students getting to know me and visa versa, and I have loved every minute. I was very impressed with the student's ability to guess different instruments in our game, 'What's That Sound?'. 

    I have heard some students express interest in taking short piano lessons with me. This is an opportunity I would LOVE to provide for them! However, with it being the beginning of the year, it will still take some time to figure out how this is most effectively going to happen. Please stay tuned while I talk to the administration about trying to offer this! Any further questions regarding potential piano lessons, please feel free to reach out to me. 

    I am having such a great time at Canterbury and I cannot wait to continue working with your students!

    Next week we will be focusing on learning the school song with Orff instruments (percussion and xylophones)!

    Thanks so much for stopping by and again, never hesitate to reach out to me with questions, comments, or concerns!
