Friday Songs 2014-15
Friday songs are my way of giving my students exposure to songs, styles and repertoire that they may not listen to on their own. It also will give them a window into my "varied" tastes in music. As I tell students, my hope is that I am playing/showing them music that they probably don't have on their own iPod, etc.
