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:
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,
