PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this easy 3-part project, students will synthesize information from thier own lives and apply it to lyrics in popular music. The goal of the project is for students to examine the human experience by connecting with artists (whom they know or have never heard of) and producing an album based on thier actual life events.

The presentations will open up a beautiful relationship between the individual student and music they relate to, peers and the teacher-class connection.
