Greetings and blessings upon you! My name is Brian Fogarty and I am looking forward to making music with the students of St. John the Baptist this year! I live in Sturgeon Bay with my wife, Amy and our 4 children and 3 dogs! I serve as the Music Director of our parish there, Corpus Christi. I graduated from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN with a B. Mus and then from the University of Illinois with a M.M. I studied music composition and theory at both schools. I've worked in Catholic Music Ministry my entire career. Best wishes for a fun school year!

In music class we have focused our attention on “rhythm.”

The younger grades have discussed the “beat” and what is means to keep a “steady” beat. We learned a song called “We Are Marching” and played some percussion instruments and had a parade!

Middle grades have focused on the beat as well. They learned a new song called “God is a Part of My Life” that has a special rhythmic percussion part (performed on drums).

And the upper grades have learned about 4/4 time, quarter notes, half notes, and whole notes, and are in the process of composing their own rhythms.

Have your child(ren) sing you the “Jesus in the morning” song!

Please check out this GRACE singing opportunity!!
