Students love exposure to different types of music, ranging from ballets to musicals to oldies to big band to current music. I try to vary my song selection, and when I am presenting a song that may be unfamiliar, I try to give it bit of a back story.

(1) This show is about…

(2) This song was popular when…

(3) This is from the movie…

(4) Have you heard of this artist…

(5) Did you know this song was written because…

The story heightens the students’ cultural awareness and deepens their experience/projection of a particular song.
