About Mr. Colby Hawkins

I am proud to be an official Edmodo Ambassador.  Please search the App Store and Google Play for "Mr. Hawkins" to see an app I designed and use every day with students, parents, and the community.In a speech to the incoming freshman at the Boston Conservatory of Music, Music Department Head Dr. Karl Paulnack gave an analogy that echoes My feelings on the importance of music education: “If we were a medical school, and you were here as a med student practicing appendectomies, you’d take your work very seriously because you would imagine that some night at two AM someone is going to waltz into your emergency room and you’re going to have to save their life. Well, my friends, someday at 8 PM someone is going to walk into your concert hall and bring you a mind that is confused, a heart that is overwhelmed, a soul that is weary. Whether they go out whole again will depend partly on how well you do your craft” (Paulnack, Why Music Matters).For more info about our choral program please visit the class website at http://wcw.schoolloop.com/colbyhawkinsPlease subscribe to my educational channel filled with Edmodo tutorials, flipped classroom videos, character development videos and more by simply copying and pasting this link into your address bar: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=HawkinsColbyMy Teaching Schedule:High School:A Period:  Madrigal/Honors Choir2nd Period:  Women's Chorus3rd Period:  Advanced Vocal Ensemble4th Period:  Concert ChoirMiddle School:6th Period:  7-8th Grade Mixed Choir
