Day 8 of the 30 Day Song Challenge with Ms. Holbrook asks us to listen to our mom/dad/brother/sister’s favorite song. I chose my mom’s favorite song, American Pie by Don McLean. This song is a tribute to the late great Buddy Holly who had a huge influence on rock & roll. The song also gave us a glimpse into what it was like to be growing up in the 1960s. https://youtu.be/iX_TFkut1PM
Speaking of favorite music...Ms. Scoggins has lots of favorites! Below is a Colorado State performance of the classic tale "Hansel and Gretel." This one is different, though, because every word is sung! Do you know the name of the style that is a play completely sung through featuring elements of the arts including classical music, lights, costumes, sets, movement? OPERA! This one is over an hour long but skip through and take a listen to the beautiful singing.
Ms. Scoggins teaches general music at Roswell North Elementary. She is also the director for the RNE Fourth and Fifth Grade Chorus. She strives to develop in each student what she has, a love of music and music learning. Her personal music experience includes performing in choral, opera, musical theater, stage, sacred and recital settings, in addition to producing, directing and coaching vocal and dramatic works.
