8th Grade Environmental Sound Songs

Reminder to my 8th Graders! This week the entire class will be working on the project – writing your own environmental sound song! Review the explanation I handed out last week! When you select your song, the easiest thing to do is to print out the original lyrics, then cross out words as you change them!

SO…. please bring in the printed lyrics to class this week!

I really enjoyed meeting you all this first week of Music!


For my 7th and 8th Grade Music students!

Hi Everyone!

I hope everyone is adjusting to our “new” normal! Wishing everyone a successful, happy, and safe school year!

I do not give homework, but I would like to let my 7th and 8th graders know that they will need a folder in which they will keep all of their music class worksheets! I will attach copies of blank worksheets here, for anyone who may be in virtual school at home.

Thank you and God Bless!

from your new Music Teacher

Hi! I am the new Music Teacher, Deidre Donovan. I received my B.A. from Rutgers College, New Brunswick, and my M.A. from Montclair State University, both degrees in Music, with a concentration in Education. I started my teaching career for the West Orange Public Schools, where I remained for 11 ½ years, teaching all grades from pre-K to Grade 9. While there, I also served as advisor to the West Orange High School Marching Band squads, taught all levels of Choirs and produced numerous concert performances, and assisted and/or directed musicals at both the middle and high school levels. After getting married and starting a family, I decided to apply for a position closer to my home in New Milford. I then began my second music teaching experience, for an additional 23 years, for the Hillsdale Public School system. Again, I taught all grades from pre-K through 8, Chorus for grades 4 through 8, and directed 18 Musicals at the George White Middle School. During this time, I was selected by the State of New Jersey to serve as a panelist for the Star Schools/Best practices program, and was named as the George White Middle School “Teacher of the Year” for 2008-2009. I retired from public school in June 2014. Up until last June, I was the Music Teacher at a private school for students with special needs, in Montclair, where I taught General Music and keyboards to all ages from 14-21, and again planned and prepared two Choral Concerts each year. I am now working as the organist/music director for a Church in the town where I live. Last February, I began teaching music at the Academy at St. Mary’s, in Rutherford, which, unfortunately, was forced to close last month! I was very luck to be able to begin again, here at Sacred Heart! I am looking forward to meeting the “kids”, and to give them a little music to help brighten up their lives in this challenging time!
