I cordially greet you hoping that you are having an excellent start to 2024. I would like to inform you that I have started my unit on “Music in Black History in the United States”. I will begin by talking about the evolution of music since the arrival of Africans to the United States (U.S) till today. Examples: Work songs, black spirituals, gospel, blues, jazz, rap, etc.

The essential question for this unit is: How can we use music to convey a message when words and actions fail?

The songs to be learned are as follows:

Prek to 1st: Che Che Kule, This Little Light of Mine, Jambo Bwana, When the Saints Go Marching In, Rockin’ Robin, Shoesholuza.

2nd & 3rd:  Don’t worry be happy, This one is for Chuck Brown, Lift every voice and sing, Count on me.

Some of the songs I’ll be teaching have religious content but at the same time a call for social justice. I will only be focusing on the social aspect. 
If you have any problem that your child sings these songs because it goes against your culture or religious beliefs, please contact me as soon as possible.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Please see concert details above.


Your music teacher,
Sr. Salvador
