When fall arrived in 2020, remote learning was well underway. It was clear that we needed some connection as a staff. Without our students here in the building, and with only a portion of staff onsite, the days have definitely been different at LHS . Enter Mr. Tanner, from our Music Department and the creation of: Tunes with Mr. Tanner
In Mr. Tanner's own words: "I started by recruiting Ms. Helmick because I knew she liked to play and sing. After Ms. Helmick's collaboration with me, all of the teachers came to me. I was super inspired by how many people wanted to do this with me. My guests always pick the songs. Part of the fun is learning songs that I wouldn't have learned otherwise. My mission in this project is three fold. First, I wanted the Liberty community to see "regular" people making music in hopes of inspiring people to make art. Second, I wanted to give the Liberty community something that makes us feel connected. Lastly, and selfishly, I did this so I had music to practice and new skills to learn. This project has really helped me get through this pandemic".
