Merry Christmas! 

I hope you had a wonderful holiday! This video is from last year, but I couldn't resist sharing. Isn't it great that this boy is on the front row!

I empathize with music educators who are pressured to put on musical programs while multi-tasking with some students with special needs, but this video really offers up a great example of how things can work out for the best.  Somehow this class made it work and it turned out to be a great show! 

Often times music teachers are left alone with an entire class during "specials" (...classes like music, art, P.E.) while the regular classroom teachers and teacher's aides try to have a break or planning period. Obviously this does not work well for some of the children who need more one to one assistance.
