7th and 8th Grade Choir/ General Music 7

Welcome to the 7th and 8th grade choir and 7th grade general music information page!
I am Jerusha Zimmerman. I am one of those people who prefer to use their middle name (pronounced Jah-roo-sha).
This is my 4th year of teaching at Dakota Meadows. I teach the 7th and 8th grade choirs (boys and girls) and  three sections of General Music in the spring. My philosophy of choral music lies in the belief that singing isn't a gift, but a skill to be developed, maintained, and enjoyed for a lifetime.

General Music begins in the 3rd or 4th quarters depending on the trail. This course is an exploratory and designed to give students basic knowledge of music theory, creativity, and performance. Students in my classes play instruments, improvise, and create to demonstrate skill and knowledge of music.
