“Internet Famous” Gr. 4-8 Concert

Honestly, these kids deserve to be famous! This fall we made a long list of songs that have gone viral and each class chose two songs to learn. Students helped me figure out the melodies and accompaniment parts and chose their instruments. We arranged and re-arranged our pieces…and rehearsed! I don’t think I’ve ever had so many instruments playing in one class ensemble: drums, bass ukulele, ukuleles, guitars, keyboards, bass xylophones, metallophones, xylophones, glockenspiels, vocals, violins, violas, and cello! Our 7-class grande finale was with the 15-year-old singer/songwriter, BoluSings, all performing her famous piece, “Just Breathe.” Ahhhhh
