Why Music? (Do You Know?)
From Plank Road Publishingby Teresa Jennings
This song is a powerful tool for the advocacy of music in our schools. The folk/rock instrumental background is very catchy and will help to make it memorable. The melody is unison throughout so that you can use the song with various grade levels easily. And there is even an optional recorder part.
The real meat of the song comes from the spoken narrations, which are gleaned from various music advocacy resources. What we have done with this song is take many of the nuggets of pertinent information and put them all together in one place to share with students, parents, administrators, fellow teachers, communities, and more. Everyone should know why music is so important! (from Music K-8, Vol. 20, No. 3)
