The Hillwood Band

       Ms. Schmitt is our music teacher at Hillwood. She is also the instructor for the Hillwood Band, a special after-school organization that allowed students to play instruments freely.

       Last school year, Ms. Schmitt and students decided to start the Hillwood Band where the upper- graders could practice together and play music.  Last year, we played songs such as Bad Moon Rising, Safe and Sound, and I'll Be Waiting by Adele.  It was a lot of fun so we decided to do it again this year.

       At the beginning of the year, we played You Can't Always Get What You Want.  It was spectacular and a lot of fun.  The Kindergartners sang with us and it was really cute and funny to listen to.  Natasha played the piano, Maddie played the guitar, Claire played the violin, and Ms. Shmitt played the guitar. Ms. Shmitt's husband Tom played the bass. Nicole, Finn, and Grace sang.
