Why should my students, school, or library participate in this live stream?
As with many things in life, they can only be learned through experience. As teachers have commented, live presentations such as this one provide in invaluable experience to students. As one teacher exclaims "What you do would be so hard for me to teach a child. The feeling of the chords and music, is just not something I can't teach."
The program also integrates with curriculum so time spend out of class is not lost on something that will not benefit students.
Most schools want to participate in fieldtrips, assembly programs and other live experiences for their students, but with the increased workload brought on by testing and other time sensitive activities, these valuable experiences are becoming more sparse.
