For all of you out there (haha) I have to put a little plug in for the show "Sing-Off"- I'm actually watching it while I blog right now and truly LOVE it.. it makes me stay up an hour later than I want, but it reminds me of WHY I love music.. pure vocals, amazing talent! It is awesome; if you haven't watched it you really need to- my favorites at the moment are the all girl group Delilah- powerful voices, gorgeous harmonies and no gimmicks! It makes me want to sing in an a capella group!!!

You Tube Videos

I did a search on the MusicK8 archives and found some really awesome videos on there that I have used in the classroom- a couple of my recent favorites that students REALLY loved watching- this one is the Hallelujah Chorus

Bach's Toccatta & Fugue (by the same animator)

Another thing my third graders loved watching was a clip on youtube by the Discovery Channel's "How It's Made" program.
Enjoy! PLEASE leave a comment or two- wondering if anybody is actually reading this???
