The Greatest Me That I Can Be (Teaching Positive Values Through Music)
This sheet music book contains 13 original songs that teach positive values such as:
*Accomplishing difficult tasks
*Doing one=s best
*Taking responsibility for one=s self
*Not holding a grudge
*Living with yourself
*The joy of reading and learning
The lyrics to several of the songs are famous poems or speeches set to music. These lyrics are written by various famous poets and authors such as Edgar A. Guest, Abraham Lincoln, Dale Wimbrow and J. Patrick Lewis.
This is a great way to help your students memorize some great, positive poetry and speeches. Also included is a song to teach all the states and capitals of the United States.
These songs have piano accompaniment and vocals. All songs but two are recorded at two different speeds with piano accompaniment only and a third recording with vocals to help you learn these new songs. You decide if you would like to sing each song slower or faster. You and your class can learn and sing along with these songs by singing along with the vocal track. Then sing them with piano accompaniment only. It's like having your own private piano player in your classroom. This is a great CD for school teachers or others who want to teach value education through music, but don't play the piano or don't have access to a piano.
