From rhythm sticks to singing and playing musical instruments, thirty-five students from Katherine Gallegos Elementary, Desert View Elementary, and Valencia Elementary recently traveled with their music teachers to participate in the Central New Mexico General Music Festival.  This year, the festival was hosted in Grants where the students learned and explored different music methods by teachers and active retirees from across New Mexico.  Vinnessa Martinez-Ohle, the music teacher at Katherine Gallegos Elementary, said it was a wonderful opportunity for students to learn and celebrate music.  To see a lesson and their performance, please play the videos below.
