March is "Music In Our Schools Month." Most of the music teachers we know like to celebrate this either in their classroom or in a performance setting. The song "Music In Our School" is a perfect vehicle because it involves everyone; it has two vocal parts, two recorder parts, and multiple percussion parts. It even has optional clapping. The piece has a percussive mixture of Latin and World Beat textures. The melody is quite simple throughout, allowing you to include students of every age to participate, and the audience, too, during the call and response section. You and your audience will enjoy the blended worldly texture of the recorded accompaniment, but if you decide you'd like to do the piece live, you certainly could. (from Music K-8, Vol. 16, No. 4)
