Music education always & always looking forward.


Don't get me wrong.  I love my kids (although they definitely get dirty looks, and often).  But I think it's totally appropriate to be blaring this with the windows down while leaving work this afternoon.  

Additionally: there's some cross-rhythm in the kick drum in the choruses.  Lots of eighth note triplets occurring.  

There!  We made Alice Cooper educationally relevant!  Although you might not want to encourage your students to examine the lyrics of this song too carefully.

My kindest and most patient thoughts go to all of our bus drivers this afternoon.  Wish them well, as they are our final frontier.
