Welcome to Guitar Lab

  • Dear Student Musicians and Families,


    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! As we embark on a school year like no other, we would like to share with you our vision and purpose in the music department at Salk Middle School. Even amidst uncertainty and anxiety about what the school year will bring, the goal of our music department is to be a place where students are welcomed into our community, lifted up for their unique talents, and challenged to become better musicians, even in a distance learning model!  For all, we will operate with a healthy dose of grace and understanding, knowing that when we are able to make music together in person again we will be a stronger musical community with the relationships and skills necessary to experience and share the joy of making music! 

    Communication is more important than ever. Please join the Remind 101 so we can communicate quickly and effectively.

    Guitar: Please text @2c8dg6 to the number 81010
