Mr. Machuga


To my Wiley Band Students:

I have set up two google classrooms, one for 5th Grade Band and one for 6th Grade Band.  I will be posting fun assigments that we can grow togerher with!   Please sign into them using the following codes:


5th Grade Band.  gs65zzm

6th Grade Band.   y2l44f3


If you find time to play a little each day, it will make you feel so much better about yourself!  I have already seen news stories with people playing instruments on porches, etc...  to pass the time and put smiles on people's faces!

There are also lots of online music games, etc...  that you can have fun with!  If you find any that you would like to share, send me the links and I will review and post them for others.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me.  I will be checking my school email a few times each day!

Please share this with all your Wiley Band-Mates so this gets around to everyone.

Take care and I look forward to getting back together soon!
