About Me


Mr. Hurst’s Music Classes Online Learning

I am available each school day, between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm to help students with music learning remotely. I will be watching closely for student contacts between 10:00 and 11:00 each morning, but you may send messages any time. 

Please check in with me by sending an email or a message in Teams at least twice each week for 5th and 6th grades and once each week for 4th grade. Let me know which music learning activities you used, and any questions or requests you may have. I will be adding more materials here as I get them prepared. You may also go to Mrs. Boggess’ and Mr. Asman’s teacher pages for study helps. If you don’t have your instrument to practice, please use these resources.

Check back here regularly, as I will add resources as I become aware of them.

You may make requests, as well, email me at
