The Next Total Solar Eclipse in the USA:
21 August 2017-- Get planning!
A song used to teach students about solar eclipses.
Written in 1998 for the full solar eclipse in Maracaibo, Venezuela. When the sun was completely blocked by the moon and the birds stopped singing, the students around me broke out into song; the song I'd written for them. It was probably my best teaching moment ever! It was recorded quickly during the excitement of it all.
Easy to learn. Difficult vocabulary made easy.
Lyrics/sheet music available (melody in key of D) Easy to play on guitar: 2-3 chords.
