H.S.A Winter Program 2014!

The H.S.A. Annual Winter Program:

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

K- 12 music students are performing in a winter program and they are ready to share the holiday spirit with you!

These students include general K-5 music students (all), and students who are in the music elective for 6-12.

There will be TWO concerts on Thursday, December 18th.

  • Students in Kinder through 3rd grades­ will perform at 5:30 pm. Students will need to be in their assigned areas of the gym at 5:00pm.
  • Students in the 4th through 12th grades will perform at 7:00 pm. Students will need to be in their assigned areas of the gym at 6:30pm.

The performers will be seated on each side of the gym; their rows will be labeled. The program will go in grade level order and there will be an opening song and finale. Your child MUST stay for the entire program.


All students are asked to wear nice and festive attire. This could be classified as their Sunday best. Dresses need to have sleeves. No sleeveless attire. Students may also wear slacks and dress shirts. Please do not wear jeans.

Practice at home!

If you are able, please practice the songs with your child. Their music can be found on the music website: hsabcsmusic.wordpress.com

The music can be found under the tabs on the top of the page. Just click on the grade level. Since most students only have music once a week, practicing at home is very helpful!

Here is the opening song and finale that ALL students will sing.


K-12– Jingle Bell Rock:


K-3 — We Wish You a Merry Christmas

4-12 —  Jolly Jingle Christmas Medley

If you have any questions, would like to help out, or your child will not be participating, please e-mail me: abrooks@harmonytx.org


Music on this website is posted for educational purposes and will be removed shortly.


Composer of the Month: September

George Gershwin

September 26, 1898 – July 11, 1937


He composed:

  • Rhapsody in Blue
  • Someone to Watch Over Me

About the Composer

  • Born in Brooklyn, NY, to a poor Russian immigrant family
  • Worked well with his brother Ira who wrote many of his lyrics
  • Wrote in many different musical styles: classical (orchestra), popular music, broadway theater, and jazz
  • He was the first composer to use techniques from jazz and blues in orchestral classical music
  • Became ill soon after the first season of Porgy and Bess finished; was only 39 years old when he died of a brain hemorrhage.

Welcome Back!!!

I am so excited to start a new musical year at Harmony Science Academy- Bryan/College Station.

Here are some reminders:

K-3 grade students do not need to bring materials to class, they just need to be excited and ready to learn! They will learn how to sing tunefully, read and play rhythms, learn music from different cultures and languages and will participate in the Winter Program this December.

4th and 5th grade students will need to bring a recorder and cleaning rod to music class every week. You can purchase one at the String and Horn Shop in Downtown Bryan. Students are expected to bring these by the third week of music class. These students get to sing in the Winter Program, and if they get a Blue or Red Belt on their recorders, they get to play in the program as well!!!


6th, 7th, and 8th grade students will need a 1″ binder with notebook paper and 5 dividers for class. Also, always remember to bring a pencil to class. The students who sign up to take music will be performing in the Winter Program this December. Get excited!!!

High School Choir members will need a black 1″ binder to hold their music. Students will also need notebook paper for their Bellwork and a pencil. Performances are MANDATORY and count as exam grades. Performances include: Winter Program, Talent Show and any other performances assigned throughout the year.
