A Virtual Classroom Activity that Builds Connection

Sing Your Story

Sing Your Story Virtual Classroom Activity
Sharing a laugh with elementary students with collaborator and conductor, Sameer Patel

How does Sing Your Story work as a virtual classroom activity?

Sing Your Story is one of my virtual classroom activity that builds creative confidence, teamwork and joy through songwriting. In one 45-50 minute session your students can write a song that is completely unique to them from any part of the globe!

How can Sing Your Story help my class curriculum?

Sing Your Story in the Virtual Classroom teaching basic musical elements and summarizing abstract concepts into simple to understand lyrical statements. Teachers can opt to have me create a song with the students to reinforce a particular subject matter or to explore their creative genius and propel your coming unit study!

If you are looking for a specific way of engaging your class through songwriting and music activities I would love to hear your ideas! Check out Send me an email at info@fernandotarango.com. Or click here if you are looking for remote business team building and would like to see a sample!

How much will it cost our school?

Most sessions can be arranged $150 USD per group of 10 learners and can be arranged through your preferred video conferencing tool.

No school will be turned away for lack of funds.

Below are some “Acoustic Sketches” of song ideas I have had the pleasure of creating with students and young audiences who have shaped the creative process by choosing the harmony, rhythm, lyrical content and more.
