Music Monday - The Force is with us!
Music Monday, the annual day to celebrate Music Education in Canada is Monday May 4 (also Star Wars Day) and we are going to celebrate. Student and community musicians from all over Delta are going to combine the nightly salute to our front line workers with Music Monday by playing Hymn to Freedom at 7:00 pm from our front steps, driveways, decks, and back yards. For Seaquam students the music is available on Google Classroom. Any community members who would like to participate, and need music can conact Ms. Sparrow-Ng or Ms. Tseng using the contact us link below.
On a trip to New Orleans in 2016 I heard the following quote from a master musician, "We aren't just musicians, we're physicians because music heals." I hereby proclaim all Seaquam Music students to be graduates of the Seaquam School of Musical Healing! Okay Music Doctors, do your thing!
As musicians we can contribute, even from a distance, by bringing the joy of music to others. We encourage students to share their music with the community at this time - while maintaining social distancing of course.
Salute our frontline workers every night at 7:00 pm by sharing a song from your open window, front steps, deck or backyard!
Join #isolanthem playing O Canada at 7:00 pm next Saturday night.
The focus of the assignments we will be having students do will be sharing music with others, musical prescriptions if you will. Please click below to find them.
