Happy by Alex Boye and One Voice Children's Choir

Alex Boye is a terrific singer who "Africanizes" songs.  Here are a couple that I think my students will enjoy!

The first is Let It Go.  In this video, he teams up with One Voice Children's choir.  There are some really great singers in this choir!!

We have learned a song for each of the instrument families:  Woodwind, Brass, String and Percussion!



When we learned about the String Family, we watched this cool video!  
(Watch as the Piano Guys play songs from Frozen on piano and cello!)

Word of the Week - Solo & Duet

Every week 2-5 grades have a Word of the Week.  
This week our word(s) were Solo & Duet.  
Mr. Sorrells (our Mon-Tues. intern) wrote a great song to help us remember their definitions.
