Song A Week Challenge

Song A Week Challenge

OK so here is how this works. I pick ten students every year and challenge them to write a song a week for twelve weeks in a row.  This year a record fifteen students attempted it. Just fantastic! Now remember this is really tough to complete.  In Eighty-Four days you have to write twelve full songs and be able to perform them for me in lesson each week.  Seven students finished this year! 84 Songs in 84 days!

Here are the names of the magnificent seven.  I am also posting pictures of them on the website. Sam Columna Andy Sydow Zach Roos Charlie Baggesse Aaron Weaver Darrell Brock Todd Talbot    ...
