My middle school students come from a special small community of hard working individuals who are mostly struggling financially, but want the very best for their children. These students work very hard on all of their projects and are determined to succeed in life.
My students love the arts and look to be as creative as possible.
They strive to perform and build self-confidence. They have various arts classes to choose from and they choose to take chorus or keyboarding classes and many will take it throughout their three year tenure at the middle school.
The chorus needs new music to perform, and this would be a wonderful opportunity to expand our selections. The music is easier for 2-part since the students are still learning how to have harmony, so more parts would be too difficult at this time.
Many choral pieces have been in the repertoire for years and we haven't had the chance to increase our musical selections.
This would be a wonderful gift to the students, the school and the community.
These songs will be performed for years to come, being able to mix up the repertoire for each semester. The students have requested different pieces as well, and their parents also, so this is a combination of those requests and other generational and worldly background ideas.
