Welcome 5th & 6th grade band students to Mr. Bielecki’s classroom at Pleasant Valley Intermediate School. I am looking forward to meeting over 120 band students when lessons begin and rehearsals begin in October in preparation for our May 2019 spring concerts. I have picked some very fun and exciting songs to perform for our 5th & 6th grade bands and am anxious to meet parents, family and friends at our upcoming concerts.
Connect-ed phone calls are used to contact parents concerning band fundraisers, concert information and use the PV Website and PV Newsletter with blogs to showcase events concerning students in 5th & 6th grade band. Also, pictures from pep rallies and concerts etc. are usually added to the PV Yearbook.

I love education because it gives me the opportunity to teach musical concepts to students allowing them to express their ideas through performance of music compositions.
