Day 29 of the of the 30 Day Song Challenge asks us to listen to a song that reminds you of yourself. I chose the Bolling Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio.

Scoggins- I'll play today! I am a major movie buff. I LOVE movies. How much I love the music is directly related to how much I enjoy the film. John Williams is one of the best-loved film composers ever. Here is my pick. The Imperial March or Darth Vader's theme from Star Wars https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bzWSJG93P8
Holbrook-Day 23 of the of the 30 Day Song Challenge asks us to listen to a song that reminds you of a friend. This song captures for me how special all of my friends have been at different points in my life. Thank you Carole King and James Taylor. https://youtu.be/7ySNPb9punk
They say dogs are "man's best friend." Watch this video and pose like the animals do to the music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rBOLuc7Stk&feature=youtu.be Awesome video, Ms. Holbrook!
Ms. Holbrook-Day 22 of the of the 30 Day Song Challenge asks us to listen to a song that you wish you could play on an instrument. For this, I chose Elgar’s Cello Concerto. I am envious of my daughter because she can play this piece and she has performed it with an orchestra here in Georgia and overseas in the Czech Republic and in Austria. What an amazing feeling that must be! This was the recording that she used to listen to when she was 4 years old and telling us that she wanted to be a cellist when she grew up. https://youtu.be/OPhkZW_jwc0
Let's move and enjoy being alive! March it to the beat. See if you can follow directions. Can you come up with any other ideas of things to do with your hands? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GZCE9gbbRM
Ms. Holbrook-Day 21 of the of the 30 Day Song Challenge asks us to listen to a song that you think is beautiful. I chose Nimrod from Enigma Variations by Elgar. You may have heard this in some movies that you’ve seen in the past. It is simply stunning. https://youtu.be/sUgoBb8m1eE
Now that your heart is full from that gorgeous music, let's work it out to Gummi Bear https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Q7-tzCCh3w
One of my favorite dance breaks!
Ms. Scoggins- I used to live in Utah so for the song challenge today I chose the folk song, "Rocky Mountain." I learned this song when I lived there. Whenever I hear it, I think of my adventures in the west!
