Instrumental Music Program

Welcome to the 2021 – 2022 Long Branch Instrumental Music Program!

Fall 2021 Playing Procedures

  • All string classes can be played inside, with masks on
  • Band instruments can be played inside, if they have bell covers
    • Bell covers will be supplied by Arts Ed, however, due to cost, as well as delays in supplies – they may not be available for everyone (especially those that may be providing their own instruments)
  • If one or more of the band students in the class don’t have a bell cover, we will have to either play outside, or the students without the bell covers will have to “finger along” and not blow
  • In case of rain, or bad weather – band classes with instruments without bell covers will have to be “fingered” and “sizzled,” or given instruction to work on at home.


  • Watch our latest bucket drumming fun:
  • Most of our materials and information is now housed on our Instrumental Music Canvas Class. Follow the instructions below to access Canvas: Please be aware that not every student has access to the Canvas Class yet!
    • On the very top of this website, click on the link to Canvas, or click the Canvas link below. If you are on a device, click on the “three lines” – and the Canvas icon should show up at the top.
    • You will then be directed to the One Login screen
    • User Name is your Student ID# (lunch #) and your student should know their password. If you need help, please contact me.
    • From the Canvas Dashboard, click on Ms. Roth Music 2019-2020
    • Click on “Lessons” to view our lesson plans and what to practice for the week
    • On the left hand side of the page, underneath the “Home” page, you should see Flipgrid
    • If your student wants to make a Flipgrid video, click on Flipgrid and find the grid that your student wants to add to.
      • If you are on a computer, there is no need to download any program
      • If you are on a device, iPhone, or iPad, you may have to download Flipgrid (which is a free app), and then go back to Canvas to access Flipgrid within Canvas. The students should be able to access Flipgrid without having to provide an email address, or a “code.”

@IamtheJulie OMG! I don't think that it came from me, but, my sister did ask me a question, and I may have referred her to you, and said that you were the boss!

@Hvsmrspct @bryanbehar I’m not sure if you have ever eaten in a teacher’s lounge. Most teachers eat their 35 minute duty free lunch at their desks, while replying to parent or admin emails, or making phone calls to parents. It’s not the social hour that you are imagining.
