This week in guitar with the Grade 5/6 French students, we practiced chord changes AND singing a well-known song at the same time. We started with "Happy Birthday", a song everyone has done a million times. To give the students a little extra push, I told them it was my big sister's 40th birthday that day, and that it would be really cool if we could record the whole class playing guitar and singing 'Happy Birthday' to my sister, Mary. After just 3 classes of guitar, here is a video of the students creating the perfect birthday present for my sister! Happy 40th Birthday, Mary!
Lucky me! I teach arts education to all K-8 students :)
