    Welcome MacArthur Tigers and parents!  I am located in Room 38 and I teach band and orchestra.  I have been teaching here at MacArthur for 12 years. Prior to teaching at MacArthur, I taught music at Greenville and several other elementary schools in Santa Ana. Students call me Ms. Holdcroft, but I am also known as Dr. Holdcroft and taught university students for a number of years. I love cats and monkeys, and besides playing band and orchestra instruments and piano, I love to sing.

    I post all my daily activities in Google Classroom.  Students are expected to log into Google Classroom each day for their assignments.  Students will have 30 minutes of homework 3 days a week.  That does not include work that they did not complete during class. We will be starting the year with recorders at home until we work out some details! We will make music right away!!

    I am available to answer questions or tutor:

    • Mon, Tue, Thur, Fri 1:05-2:25 and Wednesday 12:55-1:20 through Gmail or Zoom
