In an effort to ensure that they were fully prepared for the upcoming NYSSMA Music Festival which recently took place at Connetquot High School, the Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School Music Honor Society members met prior with elementary school music students for a mentoring session.

“During their visit, students practiced performing their scales, solos and sight reading for OBMS Tri-M students,” said OBMS music teacher Melissa Johnson. “In addition to gaining more experience, the elementary students interacted with the upperclassmen.”

Each spring, the New York State School Music Association sponsors festivals across the state in which students have the opportunity to perform solos and small ensembles for an impartial judge.
