What We Have Been Up To
In January, Notelove hosted the Snowlove Winter Concert where students, instructors, and directors had the opportunity to perform for the community! This was the first ever in-person Notelove concert following a number of online concerts and smaller performance events. Watching the Notelove family come together and celebrate young musicians as they achieved a milestone in their musical journeys was a heartwarming experience.
On January 18, 2024, Notelove instructors, students, and Tri-M and Forte members joined in on Zoom to listen to former Notelove officer, Riko Hirata–who majors in music therapy at the University of the Pacific–host her informational panel that covered the topic of music therapy. She went over what music therapy is, the requirements to pursue a career as a music therapist, as well where music therapists work.
“In terms of music therapy classes in college, I had a lot of fun in the first semester. The panel I presented today is basically an overview of what I did throughout music therapy class,” Riko explains. “[Music therapy] is a very nice class, and the professors are very caring. This semester, I’ll be visiting some senior homes to implement my music therapy knowledge–I’m quite excited!”

Music Theory Classes
This past fall, Notelove hosted a 6-week music theory class taught by 7 of Notelove’s passionate music educators! The class spanned two levels - intro and advanced - and covered various music theory concepts, such as intervals, chords, and major and minor scales. The Blookets, Gimkits, and music listening sessions were some of the students’ favorite activities!
After an eventful day at the Snowlove Concert, our Notelove directors huddled down to celebrate at dinner in Tea Era. The concert was very successful and exciting, and they unwound with popcorn chicken and tea as they discussed their thoughts on the concert.
January 2024 Social
Notelove hosted a director social at Serra Park on July 23, 2023 welcoming the 23-24 Director team! Directors got to know each other better, took headshots for the website, and began ideation for the new school year.
