If You Build It
From Plank Road Publishingby John Riggio
This song, which itself builds from simple eighth note stabs to an all-out wall of sound, is all about building character. It speaks of making right choices, being an upright person, and changing the world. Doing the right thing and building one's character isn't always easy. It requires perseverance.
Use this song to begin a dialog with your students. Encourage them in their own efforts to be upright, kind, and decent. Their decisions will help shape their character, affect people around them, and potentially change the world for the better. (from Music K-8, Vol. 24, No. 3)
