Welcome to Band at Windom!

Welcome to Band at Windom!
Michael Robinson
Band's teacher

My name is Michael Robinson and I have been teaching band (and orchestra) for 24 years in Minneapolis public schools Currently teach at Seward, Barton and Windom.

 

I'm currently  the principal bassist for the Dakota Valley Symphony, a community orchestra in Burnsville.  I also play in a couple of jazz groups

 

There are currently about 100 students enrolled in band at Windom this year.  This year I will purchase 15 "like new" (slightly used) instruments from Groth music with money saved from band donations these past 2 years. 

 

If families want to donate their band instruments to Windom we'd be glad to take them.  Even if they need a little repair.

We have a district repair shop that can take a look at them to see if they're worth fixing up or not. 

 

We will have a concert in the Spring; Check the school calendar for dates.  

 

Thank you!

Hello! MyHello! My name is Greta Hazer and this is my first year at Windom.  Starting each day at this wonderful school has been such a blessing for me and I am excited to share with my 4th and 5th graders this year.  I am a graduate from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Music Education, and I have been a music teacher and Latin dance professional since the early 2000s.  At Windom, I teach the Instrumental Music program on Fridays.  I am excited about helping our band students grow in their music journey and am so happy to call Windom my home. 
Additionally, this year has afforded me a wonderful opportunity to teach a class I call Master Minds.  I feel so grateful to be able to work with the band grade students in a greater capacity than typically one has with a one-day-a-week band gig.  Master Minds is a class that helps to build focused attention and awareness through activities such as Mindfulness Schools curriculum, Qi Gong, Brain Gym, and a daily practice of gratitude.  I’m excited for what this year will bring, as my students are as much my teachers as I am theirs, and it is a privilege to work with them every week. name is Greta Hazer and this is my first year at Windom.  Starting each day at this wonderful school has been such a blessing for me and I am excited to share with my 4th and 5th graders this year.  I am a graduate from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Music Education, and I have been a music teacher and Latin dance professional since the early 2000s.  At Windom, I teach the Instrumental Music program on Fridays.  I am excited about helping our band students grow in their music journey and am so happy to call Windom my home.
