Carmen's Composition

Highlight FEB 13!

Today, I wrote a song for one of my students who is in the hospital awaiting a big operation.  I introduced this song to her class and we talked about how music can be used to encourage people when they are sad.  They have no idea yet who it's for or that I wrote it.  I am waiting for them to connect it themselves: "OH! Mr. Henry! We could totally use this song to make _____ feel better!"  That moment will be meaningful, significant, and our kids will be using music to bring GOOD into the world.  This is what it is to have a music-colored life. This is what it is to be alive and a part of society- expressing through art. #musicisrelevant
