Still Loving the #Character.org National Forum. “Educate, Inspire, Empower, Building Productive Citizens”
Day 2 of the Forum has been inspiring so far. Excellent speakers and excellent attendees.
Of course, one of the best parts of the forum is the exhibitors ! I wanted to share some of the awesome resources I learned about this week. Please check out the Character.org Character Consortium!
Have a wonderful weekend, and remember, MUSIC REACHES!
AROUND THE PIANO is a collection of easy to learn songs and lessons created by experienced teacher and performer Frankie Ghee. The lyrics give advice or share philosophies about character that young people can understand and explore. The lessons encourage creativity, self-expression, and tolerance. While designed intentionally to appeal to older students, this resource works well for all ages. Gathering around the piano fosters fellowship and bonding in ensembles, clubs, and community programs.
What does a perfect world look like to you? This is a great song to explore lyric writing, different musical styles and improvisation!
